Just after 6pm Needham Road Fire Department assisted River Plantation Fire Department with a reported structure fire at Oak Park and Old Humble Pipeline in the Magnolia Bend area. On arrival they found a shed already burned to the ground. A burn barrel not far away and plenty of pine needles appeared to be the cause but it is being investigated by the Montgomery County Fire Marshal for final determination. Fire fighters spent over an hour extinguishing the fire and putting out hotspots.
Again at 3am Sunday morning River Plantation was assisted by Caney Creek Fire Department on a grass and woods fire on Crighton Road just off FM 3083.
A burn ban is still in place for Montgomery County. Ignoring it will result in a citation and a expensive fine.
