Army to Keep Tinker Field Going After Fire
The army air force plans, says a Washington dispatch, to continue activities at Tinker Field near Oklahoma City despite the fire Monday which destroyed the main hanger and caused damage to the building estimated by the army at $749,000.00.
Ten people were killed by fire and explosions, 33 injured. Air force officers said that the field had been placed on the interim list of army air fields and it would remain active for the time being. The fire has not in any way changed those plans.
