Brush Fire

A fire crew from McQueeney Volunteer Fire Department tackles a portion of a large brush fire that consumed several acres and threatened some homes on Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018 between Interstate 10 and U.S. Highway 90 near Jahns and Old Ilka Roads.

It’s been a while since a substantial rain has fallen in Guadalupe County.

This means as the ground is drying out, the grass and brush are starting to die, which combined creates more potential for wildland fires.
