The fire is under the management of Texas A&M Forest Service’s Incident Command, Daniel Lucy. There are approximately 100 total personnel assigned to the fire.

The current size is 215 acres of heavy brush and long grass with a 50% containment status but has a big change of spreading further into heavy fire fuels if the weather continues to become more hot and dry.

A heat advisory remains in effect for the area from 2000 hours on Wednesday until later afternoon on Thursday, July 28, 2022.
