Crews Battle To Contain Smithville Wildfire
Updated: Monday, July 29 2013, 10:58 PM CDT
Thick, dark smoke was visible for miles Monday evening in Bastrop County. A brush fire ignited in the heart of Smithville -- consuming everything in its path.
"It's high fuel out here, down there flaming up on us, getting into dry trees," said Smithville Fire Chief James Elam.
Elam claims high winds and heat are fueling the flames.
Over 100 fire fighters -- many from surrounding communities -- battled the blaze from ground, the fire getting within feet of several homes.
As of Monday evening officials say the flames had scorched 220 acres. About 30 people were evacuated, and one structure was saved.
"It got within 50 feet of it. We had enough space we were able to save it," said Smithville firefighter Jack Paige.
Smithville firefighters are using neighborhood fire hydrants to refill tanker trucks and then sending them back to the front lines to help keep the raging fire from spreading.
"The fire is not one of those burn everything in your path fires but it's a serious fire," said Bastrop County Emergency Management Spokesman Mike Fisher.
