TRASH FIRE CATCHES WOODS ON FIRE DESTROYS MOBILE HOME

At 3:00 Saturday afternoon a grass and woods fire was dispatched on Blackberry Lane off Tommy Smith in the Grangerland area. Caney Creek Fire Department who were on a fire assisting River Plantation on Crighton Road and another Caney Creek unit fighting a fire on Wagon Wheel broke away and responded.

Deputy Jimmy Cox with the Precinct 4 Constables Office was in the area serving papers when he saw the smoke and went to investigate. What he found was a fast moving fire which ignited a mobile home and was now totally involved.

He notified Fire Dispatch who dispatched additional trucks and manpower from Cut and Shoot and North Montgomery County Fire Departments.

As fire fighters arrived low power lines and a narrow gate prevented them from making entry to the property. The mobile home was already on the ground, totally destroyed. The woods were burning with intensity and winds pushing it toward other homes. In addition power lines were down and arching from the mobile home.

Firefighters used rakes and garden hoses until booster trucks small enough to fit down the driveway arrived. They were then able to stop the spread of the fast moving fire.

Entergy arrived a short time later to disconnect the power so they could approach the mobile home to extinguish what remained of it.

The wooded area was so thick that the only way to attack some of that fire was on foot.

The day didn’t end there as several hours later Caney Creek Fire Department was once again dispatched to a fire on Young Sam Road at Old Houston.

Sunday is another day firefighters are worried about. Highs are going to be in the mid-seventies again with winds 10-15 mph.

PEOPLE PLEASE DO NOT BURN-THERE IS NO BURN BAN BUT PLEASE THE FIREFIGHTERS ARE BEING TAXED TO THEIR LIMITS WITH ALL THESE PREVENTABLE FIRES.  SUNDAY FIRE DANGER WILL BE HIGH AGAIN AND REMEMBER IT IS ILLEGAL TO BURN HOUSEHOLD TRASH IN MONTGOMERY COUNTY.

 

GENTE POR FAVOR NO BURN-NO SE QUEMA BAN PERO POR FAVOR LOS BOMBEROS pagan impuestos a sus límites con todos estos incendios evitables. PELIGRO DE INCENDIO Domingo será alto NUEVO Y RECORDAR ES ILEGAL PARA QUEMAR LA BASURA DEL HOGAR EN EL CONDADO DE MONTGOMERY.
