WHEELER, Texas (AP) – A 64-year-old Stinnett (stih-NET’) man died in a Texas Panhandle wildfire that burned about 1,000 acres.

Wheeler County authorities identified the victim as Allen Ray Lemon.

Officials believe Lemon was working late Monday afternoon at a gas well when the wildfire started. A bulldozer at the site also burned.

Meanwhile, Wheeler County Commissioners on Tuesday voted to establish a burn ban.
