Brush fire in Bastrop County

Posted on July 31st, 2013 No Comments

After a brush fire broke out near Smithville on Monday, burning across 220 acres, Bastrop County firefighters were sent to control and monitor the fire.

About 50 percent of the fire was already contained by the evening crew on Monday night. According to Chief James Elam of the Smithville Fire Department, Star Flight was brought in immediately to control the brush fire, allowing for the deployment of  ground personnel to the area.

Chief Elam also stated that dozens of residents were evacuated, but no injuries or damaged homes were reported as of Tuesday, July 30.

Monitoring crews stayed until Tuesday morning and were expected to continue to battle the fire. The Texas Forest Service is also set to make evaluations of the fire and any damage it causes.

Although this current fire has not seemed to cause homeowners property loss and damage, many are still fighting for the insurance they are owed from the fire in Bastrop two years ago.
