Firefighter Injured in Montague Co. Blaze

2-11-06 - GRANBURY, Texas (AP) - An Oregon firefighter remains in critical but stable condition after being injured in a North Texas wildfire.

Authorities say 43-year-old Steven Burns suffered broken bones while helping fight a 26-acre fire in Montague County late Thursday.

Officials didn't know how he was injured but said Burns was, quote, "in good spirits."

Since late December, fires spurred by the dry conditions have burned more than 455-thousand acres across Texas, destroyed more than 340 homes and killed three people.
