Incident Photo for the Beaver Pond Fire

At approximately 6:45 pm last night, Texas A&M Forest Service (TAMFS) responded to a wildfire on Hwy 59, just south of Nacogdoches, TX. Once on scene, TAMFS began constructing dozer lines around the fire while local fire departments performed structure protection on 4 threatened homes. 
Once homes were protected, and fire activity died down as the night went on, all resources left the scene to return in the morning to resume containment of the fire. 
Crews arrived back on scene at approximately 9:00 am the next morning to find low fire activity, and were able to make quick progress with bull dozers in containing the fire.
The fire is currently at 85% containment, and is showing little to no fire activity.
