A 32-acre pasture fire was contained by the joined forces of Bastrop-area Fire Departments on Saturday afternoon, July 6.
The pasture fire started at the back of a house in the 400 Block of High Grove Road and was almost put out by responding firefighters by around 3 p.m. Five Points Volunteer Fire Department Chief Kevin Giesalhart said the fire could have been much more devastating as winds were blowing at around 15-20 mph when the fire was going.
Fortunately, the residents were not in their home yet during the fire.
From the back of the house, the fire spread rapidly to the pasture until it reached into the thick woods, Giesalhart also said.
Losing property in a wildfire, such as the Bastrop County wildfire in 2011, can be devastating, emotionally and financially. Additionally, if the insurance company makes it difficult for you to secure reimbursement that you need and deserve, recover from such a loss can be even more difficult. Fortunately, if you are in such a situation, a lawyer Williams Kherkher may be able to help you fight the insurance company. Call 800-639-8460 today.
