January 31, 2011

A fire that Sweetwater Fire Chief Grant Madden calls "suspicious" burned about 600 acres near Lake Trammell on Saturday. The blaze threatened many area homes, as well as oil storage units and natural gas pipelines. According to Madden, the wind, humidity and dry brush made the blaze burn faster and move quickly through the area.
"We are not sure what started the fire. There was nothing around that seemed to have ignited the fire around the area in which it began. If anyone has information about the cause of the fire, we would like to know," said Madden.
