A field of pallets caught fire on Ruidosa Avenue near Abilene Bowling Lanes and the old Sam's Club late Friday, resulting in massive flames and concern it would reach nearby buildings. It took Abilene firefighters, with much-needed assistance from the Texas Forest Service, more than two hours to get the blaze under control. One firefighter suffered minor injuries to his face, fire officials said.
