FIREFIGHTERS IN LIBERTY COUNTY DID MORE THAN FIGHT A GRASS FIRE TODAY-THEY DUG IT UP BY THE ROOTS

With law enforcement officials wearing out after the long and manual hours this week in the Liberty County marijuana fields they needed help. It was determined that the plants roots also needed to come out of the ground, with that Captain Rex Evans decided to tap an additional resource. Captain Evans contacted a volunteer fire department to see if they had man power to assist. Unlike some counties now where departments are paid , these departments are all volunteer.

It wasn’t long before other departments offered to assist also. By noon Cypress Lakes, Hull-Daisetta, Westlake, Woodpecker and Highway 321 Departments offered their services. 

Manning shovels over thirty firefighters manned shovels and started packing the roots up in plastic bags. By 6 p.m. they had completed the chore and after posing for a photo were on their way home.

Captain Evans said he really appreciated the help they gave him, his officers and the community this afternoon. Evan’s stated that this was a prime example of volunteers coming together to help others when in need. He couldn’t thank them enough as they rolled down the dusty road as the sun began to set.

    Well, if Captain Evans had pulled the plants up properly in the first place, he would not have been forced to call the firefighters two days later, after the DA told him to go back and complete his mission. This guy is a clown, but the firefighters should be commended for covering his behind…

      Of 9 fields that I have been on in two years this was the first the DA asked for them to be pulled up. Montgomery County wasn’t done, San Jacinto County wasn’t done. Navarro County wasn’t done. Grand Prarie wasn’t done. Wood County wasn’t done. Nacogdoches County near Melrose wasn’t pulled. Lake Lavon at Mckinney wasn’t pulled. Besides the ones cutting them were DPS, FEDS and LCSO . Before you start calling people clowns you need to look at the facts. Why is the DA in Liberty County having the roots pulled and taking Volunteer fiorefighters off the streets from 6 departments leaving areas virtually uncovered when he has all the money in his seizure fund he won’t release. Be nice since they pulled them he gave them some of those seized funds from over the years.
