(AP) — Hours after Vice President AJ Gore praised firefighters for stopping the flames from destroying any homes in Florida's most fire-devastated county, an unoccupied home burned. Authorities urged residents in southern Volusia County to flee Monday, so homeowners packed their vehicles with belongings and watched from about a mile away as black smoke rose up in the air. "I'm so sorry," Gore said to Jus to and Josephina Urquiza, hugging the couple in front of what was left of their home in a burned-out subdivision in Flagler County. Since Memorial Day, fires have burned almost 237,000 acres — mostly forest and scrubby swamp land — from one tip of Florida to the other. The fires have destroyed 78 houses and threatened several subdivisions. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has spent $35 million in Florida and expects to spend another $35 million by the time the fires are out, Gore said. . In the Seminole Woods subdivision in Flagler County, 19 homes were destroyed by fires June 6. "We lost everything in this neighborhood and I'm telling you, it's difficult," Bob March, who intends to rebuild, told Gore. "The house didn't mean anything. It's what's in the house that makes a home." Fires have ravaged 80,000 acres in Volusia County. The flames threatened nearly 200 homes in one subdivision. Sheriffs deputies at first wouldn't let Shanna Stuart and her 15-year-old son, Ryan Varner, retrieve their two rottweilers and two cats from their home, which was within hundreds of yards of the fire. "You can either let m« go down there or ar- rest me here," Mrs. Stuart told the deputies before they let her through a street blockade. After more than a month of burning, Florida's blazes showed no signs of letting up. This year, an extremely wet winter was followed by a bone-dry spring and the hottest June on record. The wetness fed underbrush that later dried and fueled fires throughout thestat*. Hot, dry weather also was a problem for firefighters in the West. Among the blazes they were fighting were a 6,000-acre fire in southwestern Utah's Beaver Dam Mountains, near the Arizona border and a fire that blackened 2,660 acres of the Santa Fe National Forest in New Mexico. High heat and winds also fanned the flames of three large wildfires in Colorado. CONCORDIA, Kan. (AP) — In less than a day, the Cloud County Co-op Elevator here will begin turning away farmers who bring in trucks brimming with their spring crop. A bumper wheat harvest has strained storage and transportation facilities. The harvest is about 80 percent complete in the farms around Concordia, where yields have been better than expected at between 40 and 60 bushels an acre, said elevator manager Darrell Nelson. Hot, dry weather has speeded the harvest. The wheat harvest is 68 percent complete across the state, the Kansas Agricultural Statistics office reported Monday. That compares to 5 percent last year at this time. Most years, about 28 percent of the wheat is harvested by this date. At the Concordia elevator, crews have already handled 2.4 million bushels of wheat this season, Nelson said. "We are within a day .of being full. Then we will have to turn it away until we are able to move some out," Nelson said. "We don't store it on the ground." One disappointment with the local crop is protein. content, which is too low for the mill market, he said: Wheat prices are also extremely low, now at $2.55 a bushel and falling. Most farmers bringing in the wheat are putting it into storage, waiting to pick a better time to sell, Nelson said. Farmer Brad Berk stopped at the grain elevator Monday. He has already harvested all hia wheat crop, with some fields yielding as much a.s 70 bushels an acre. "I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm not selling it today. It's down 10 cents today," he said. Like many farmers around here. Berk has diversified his crop to spread his risks: He also grows corn, onts, beans and milo. "I won't store it, I'll probably sell it, and then buy it back on the futures market," Berk said.
