Wildfire Contained In Clark County, KS

Crews battled and contained a wildfire in Clark County, Kan., that was pushed by high winds and low humidity.

The fire began one day shy of the one-year anniversary of the massive Starbuck wildfire that scorched 460,000-plus acres in Kansas. Coupled with that fire’s damage in Oklahoma, Starbuck blackened 662,000 acres.

Allison Kuhn, a public information officer for Clark County Emergency Management, told KWCH News today’s fire started before noon north of Hwy 160, about five miles west of Ashland. 

Jenny Giles Betschart, Ashland, Kan., told Drovers the fire was contained about 2:30 p.m. She said the fire began when a truck caught on fire west of Ashland, igniting a shelterbelt. Winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour from the Northwest pushed the fire South of Ashland, and the town was not in danger. 

Extreme fire danger remains for the area through Tuesday as stronger winds are expected. Betschart said the fire danger this year is worse than last year.

"It's much worse," she said. "We haven't had any measurable precipitation since September. Last year we had an ice storm right before the fire, but nothing this year." Betschart's family lost 1,000 cattle in last year's fire.

Officials estimated 1,500 to 2,000 acres burned in today's fire.

Today's temperature in Ashland was 57 degrees F, with 9% humidity. Tuesday's temperature is forecast at 54 degrees F, and winds of 30 to 40 miles per hour with gusts to 60 miles per hour.

Effective powerful love spell to get your Ex lover back urgently after breakup/divorce!.
Hi everyone,
I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again...
All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you. Here’s his contact.
