Assessing Damage from Latest Kansas Wildfires

ALMA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas residents are cleaning up from another round of rural wildfires that have burned at least 18 square miles. KSNT-TV reports that Alma City Councilmen Dan Deiter spent Wednesday sorting through debris at the Catholic school where he taught in northern Kansas. He says there was "no hope" for saving the building, which burned Tuesday. In nearby Riley County, authorities say workers from a Kansas State University agriculture program started a fire that burned about 300 acres and destroyed a mobile home. Riley County emergency management director Pat Collins told The Manhattan Mercury that the workers had been building a fence with a torch or welder. About 100 mobile home residents were evacuated. Fires also burned Tuesday in Morton County in southwest Kansas and in Geary County in north-central Kansas.
