The Jail log shows the county booked a 19 yr old Victor John Vargas of Lometa on a charge of solicitation of a minor under 14.

Lampasas Firemen joined the Lometa VFD on a structure fire just before 10am  at 810 N. 6th in Lometa. A resident, using a kitchen range to heat the room, had a cat that knocked a box over on the stove. The burning box started another fire and in the end the house was a total loss.

Lampasas Firemen joined the Kempner VFD in a call this morning at 5:16am to the Shell station in Kempner. A motor home parked behind the business had caught fire and was a total loss. While on that scene the firemen were called to another fire on Sikes Dr. where a structure that turned out to be in Coryell Co. and taken over by Cove F.D. was also a total loss.  

The DPS Reminds Texans to prepare for winter weather, saying that cars traveling down highways should flashlights, cell phones, windshield scrapers, blankets, sleeping bags, etc.  Just in case, they get in a stalled situation on a cold, icy roadway.

The Burn Ban was lifted again Monday for one more week.
