Texas A&M Forest Service was requested to assist on a fast moving wildfire burning in Wise County late on August 3, 2022. The Deep Creek Fire is burning north of Rhome, Texas near Pioneer Road and Highway 287 in grass and brush vegetation.
The Deep Creek Fire initially prompted evacuations in the area. More information concerning evacuations can be found on the Wise County Office of Emergency Management Facebook Page: https://t.co/dqT74kpKEO">https://bit.ly/3JxkkV0.
At this time all evacuations have been lifted and power is being restored to the area. The fire has been knocked down and is now being mopped up to ensure no further growth.
Texas A&M Forest Service was requested for assistance but thanks to the hard work of fire departments from Wise, Parker, Denton, and Tarrant counties the fire was knocked down prior to their arrival. After some discussion Texas A&M Forest Service was released and will not be taking any action on this fire.
