Inciweb information was updated: 1 month ago

The Texas A&M Forest Service received a new request in Llano County on Highway 71 in between County Road 308 and 309 at approximately 2:00pm on May 19th. TAMFS crews arrived on scene shortly after and found 2 fires, one that had been stopped by local resources, and one uncontained fire actively spreading. TAMFS is in unified command with local resources to reach full containment. Aviation resources are being used in tandem with TAMFS bulldozers and county motor graders to build containment lines. Engines are being used to mop up hotspots, patrol the fire perimeter, and provide structure protection. Elevated to near critical fire weather is expected in the area of the Twin Starts Fire through Friday 5/20. This fire is in close proximity to the Sandstone Mountain and Slab Road Fires which began on May 17th.
