Structure Fire

Around 1:30 p.m. this afternoon units from Amber Fire Department, GCFD Friend and Pocasset stations responded to a reported structure fire in Amber.

The fire was at 408 East 6th street in Amber.

GCFD is on automatic aid with Amber for now as a result of the water towers in Amber being repaired.

First arriving units confined the fire to the hot water heater area.

A good job of responding and working the fire was done especially in the weather and road conditions we are experiencing in Grady County at this time.

Snow scenes

This is another Grady County home outlined by the quiet beauty of the recent snowfall. The lack of tracks and smoke from the chimney suggest the homeowner prepared for this weather event and are curled up enjoying life.

Do you know this driveway

Trackless snow presents opportunities for post card type photos county wide.

Does anyone recognize this address?

Beautiful snow slippery roads

The gently falling snow Grady County woke up to is creating some very pretty winter scenes as well as photo ops. Trackless snow with some of your favorite spots allows for quiet, serene beauty.

The other side of that is the hazardous driving conditions creating ample opportunities for motor vehicle accidents. According to witnesses this small pickup was unable to stop at the intersection of 6th and Choctaw. The resulting collision with the 18 wheel semi truck made the day worse for both drivers. Chickasha PD diverted traffic during the investigation to lessen the possibility of another accident as a result of roadway blockage and confusion.

Road conditions getting worse

Chickasha towing loading one of two vehicles involved in a minor collision at the Highway 62 and I-44 intersection.

This is just one of many accidents in the county at this time.

Please do not travel unless absolutely necessary.
