Jail Annex Will Have Repairs Paid For

 Wichita County Commissioners decided to sign a check to pay for repairs to the Jail Annex. 

A bull snake caused the damage.  The reptile crawled into some cables on May 7th while trying to reach a birds nest.  The snake somehow connected two wires and caused the transformer box to short circuit and catch fire.

Deputies said the fire cut the power to the Annex.

The cost of the repair was nearly $4,800.
