High Winds Make Burning Dangerous

What started as a routine controlled burn, quickly grew out of control thanks to the abnormally high winds we have been experiencing lately. Around 2pm on Saturday, February 11,area fire departments were dispatched to a controlled burn out of control in the Muldoon area. Muldoon, La Grange, and Flatonia Fire Departments all battled the blaze that quickly spread into surrounding thick brush. The Texas Forest Service was called in to help. The fire was finally contained and thanks to the brave responders, no one was injured and no structures were damaged.
