After the Tuesday night flareup of the wildfire next to Crown Ranch in Magnolia, Magnolia Firefighters and a Task Force from the Texas Forest Service remain on the scene to mop up any spot fires. They are also reinforcing fire lines. The fire last night followed a fire Sunday afternoon which is believed to have been lightning sparked. At dust Tuesday Magnolia Firefighters were met with a 15-foot wall of flames as they approached two homes on Lauren’s Lane in Crown Ranch. Firefighters were able to hold off the flames and save the property. AS night fell winds continued and flare ups remained. Heavy smoke and blowing soot along with hot embers continued traveling through the air. The fire was officially 100% contained close to 3am with 89 acres being consumed. The Sunday blaze consumed 120 acres. This is the same area of the 2011 wildfires that struck the area when one of the driest seasons ever recorded took place. Many homes were lost in the Magnolia area during those fires. According to Montgomery County Fire Marshal Jimmy Williams, the regrowth in the burned out area has been tremendous. With youpon and young trees there is plenty of fuel for another wildfire.
