• All units from the Portales Fire Department and one truck from Dora responded to a peanut hull fire just south of the Hinderliter Animal Clinic. Due to high winds, several small grass fires were continually starting from the initial blaze. The fire was brought under control around midnight. A truck and peanut trailer sustained damage from the fire. Smoke damage was also reported in new trailer homes that were on display in the area.
