“I was down in the basement of the courthouse. It’s just one of those things that happens. It didn’t make me sad.”

- Jesse Hollingsworth, 67, of Chico

“I was at our church. We were preparing for a chuckwagon dinner, a banquet for the kids. I heard about it from some of the other people talking about it. I thought it was terrible. I think it’s kind of sad.”

- Donna Geeslin, 53, of Chico

“I guess I’m out of the loop. I haven’t heard that Big Tex burst into flames. I guess that was just here recently? … Well, I guess when I heard it I was on the Square answering this question. That’s wild. We showed cattle at the State Fair for years, but that’s wild.”
