Firefighters from Bono and other departments responded to reports of an outside fire threatening several recreational vehicles and a residence at about 12:20 p.m. Tuesday in the 2200 block of Farm-to-Market Road 2331.
Firefighters arrived to find the fire had burned one RV to the ground and had spread to surrounding debris. Firefighters told a man moving items from the burning debris to move away from the fire. Firefighters used about 1,500 gallons of water and five gallons of foam extinguishing the blaze.
The destroyed RV was being used as a residence, according to reports. The owner told firefighters he caught his mattress on fire and the fire spread to the RV.
Cleburne firefighters responded to a grass fire at 11:50 a.m. Sunday near Harvest Hill and Nolan River roads to find an area of brush and grass mixture about 1,000 square feet burning. Firefighters used about 100 gallons of water to extinguish the fire.
Firefighters responded to reports of a swarm of bees attached to a student’s pickup at 4:18 p.m. Friday at the Cleburne High School Baseball Complex.

Firefighters responded to a power line down at 5:58 a.m. Wednesday in the 1300 block of North Nolan River Road to find a leaning electric pole with lines hanging close to the ground.

Stopping by church
A Saturday police chase ended badly for the suspect. The driver of a Dodge Ram attempted to flee after a Cleburne officer attempted a traffic stop at 3:36 a.m. The driver turned from Granbury Street west onto West Henderson Street and accelerated rapidly, according to reports. Wet pavement conditions caused the driver to spin out of control into one of Field Street Baptist Church’s buildings.
