Fire breaks out in Smithville as anniversary of Bastrop wildfire nears

Posted on September 22nd, 2014 No Comments

A wildfire broke out in Smithville several days before the third anniversary of the devastating Bastrop County wildfire, reported on Tuesday, September 2.

Fire crews reportedly fought the blaze that started at around 2:00 p.m. in the 100 block of Krchnak Road and ravaged more than 15 acres of vegetation. It took crews almost two hours to completely contain the fire. It was originally supposed to be a controlled burn, but dry and windy conditions made the flames unmanageable. Fire Chief James Elam stated that they quickly responded by tapping other fire departments to contain the area fast.

At least 34,000 acres were ravaged by wildfire in Bastrop in 2011 that destroyed almost 2,000 houses and killed two people.
