BRIEF: Fire damages home in Ector County

Feb 14, 2013 (Odessa American - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- A kitchen fire in Ector County left a rental home uninhabitable Wednesday evening.

Odessa Fire and Rescue responded to the blaze at about 6:15 p.m. and extinguished it within about five minutes. The residents of the home, at 6114 Beatty Ave., couldn't be found, said Battalion Chief Danny Wyatt, and the cause of the fire wasn't clear.

The fire stemmed from the kitchen area, where it caused heavy heat and smoke damage, Wyatt said. Smoke damaged the rest of the house, too, and firefighters were seen pulling down chunks of ceiling to make sure the fire hadn't spread to the attic. The fire did not spread to the attic.

No foul play was suspected, Wyatt said.

OFR reported a grass and trash fire at the same location a few weeks ago.

I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.
