HeraldZeitung photo by JOHN HUSETH Tuesday nights fire at Jaks Liquor caused approximately In damage to three businesses Canyon biggest in county in 94 By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer A fire near Canyon Jake Tuesday evening was the largest commercial fire in the county this year said Comal Coun ty Fire Marshall Milton Willmann The blaze caused damage estimated by Willmann at over to three businesses River Sports Jaks Liquor and Jaks Food and Beverage where the corporate offices are located at the comer of FarmtoMarket Roads 306and2673 Thats the biggest one in the county this said Willmann Five firefighters were transported to McKenna Memor ial Hospital and several others were treated for heat and smoke but there were no seripus injuries said Willmann The blaze started around 10 and was ended at around Willmann said the Canyon Lake Volunteer Fire Depart ment and Bulverde Fire Department responded to the call New Braunfels was not called He said efforts were hindered because the gallon tanker truck at Canyon Lake was out of service The tanker would have helped put out the blaze sooner he said Even though the location is close to the Guadalupe Riv er cliffs prevented firefighters from pumping water to the blaze They pipes wont suck it up that said the fire marshall Willmann added the cause of the blaze was accidental probably caused by an electrical problem He said a camper behind the tube business was found to have several electrical problems Burning ban could be placed on county soon official says By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer Kre Marshall Milton WiHmann said Comal County could place a on outdoor burning soon With dry weather gripping the Hill Otontry several neighboring coun ties have instituted bans Hays County placed a ban ori out door burning Monday next week to institute the necessary paper work which must be signed by the county judge to go into effect He said grass fires have become a problem There has been one recorded in Spring Branch two in Bulverde three in the Canyon including a large fire recently near River Oaks about four miles north of New Braunfels That little bit they spread so be is so dry and the grass is WiHtoann said grass fires move very fast even without wind because they create a vortex which pushes the fire forward at up to 20 miles per hour Firefighters in some areas of the county are often hindered by remote areas they cannot reach You just have tt wait for it to come to you he said Sometimes it will just run over NBU beginning extensive projects for next five years By CHRISTINE MARTIN Staff Writer The current laying of sewer lines at FM1101 and Highway 46 and High way 46 N and Hunters Creek mark the beginning of extensive projects proposed by New Braunfels Utilities including for electric hookups per year for the next five years NDU Board Vice President Robert Orr criticised tho figure as being too conservative at a workshop meeting held recently We were doing a million dollars per year In the he said Roger Biggerg assistant general manager for technics operations Electrical work earmarked for western part of county defended his projections I know but we hated to overesti mate and have the money sitting there he replied to Orr We really busted the budget in the past but we feel the growth cant last Most of these are because of load growth in the he said Regulatory changes also called for some of the projects such as having to purchase racks on which to store utili ty poles so the concentration of them will avoid contaminating the aquifer with creosote with which they are coated The racks cost One of the bigger electrical jobs they will be starting soon is rebuilding an underground circuit at Northcliffe The job is estimated to run Its going to be Biggers said in a presentation of the plan to a board workshop this week We would love to be able to replace the whole thing off front The circuit runs through peoples back yards Another big electrical job is a project to remove a dead line running across poles several miles in western Comal County Developments have sprung up near and around the line and it is now a liability Biggers said Another electric project is to recon duct electricity along Mill Street It will be helpful during storm events we can bring people up Big gers said Numbertwo copper is too small to carry a transfer The biggest project scheduled so far Is to connect NBU facilities by fiber optics sometime before 1996 They also want to increase the capac ity of a line to Loop 33 6 from Hunter Industries Thats a weak link in our Biggers said Increasing quarry activi ty is the reason for increased electrical demand out that way he said A circuit breaker in Smithson Valley will cost he said They will redo the electric line along Hunter Road in the 199596 bud get year when Hunter Road is sched uled to be rebuilt Well have to move it Biggers said They will make it bigger when they move the line for the road construction set for the 199596 budget year Big gers said In 199798 they plan to rebuild or a Union Street circuit for a new medical office complex Of course the projects get less sure tho farther out there we Biggers said For news
