How Part of the Spade Ranch was Burned During 1922

A 10-mile stretch of the Spade Ranch’s pasture was burned when the people watching the fire lost control of it. The strong south wind made the fire spread north rather quickly. It burned up to the Spade Ranch headquarters and took about 100 men to finally get the fire put after several hours of fighting it. However, the lost of the grass at this point is a serious problem for the ranch, which belongs to W. L. Ellwood.
