WIMBERLEY, Texas (KXAN) — Crews responded to a large grass fire near an elementary school in Wimberley Thursday afternoon, according to the Hays County Sheriff’s Office.

The fire was located near FM 2325 and Jacobs Well Elementary.

As a result of the fire, the Wimberley Independent School District canceled Friday classes for Jacobs Well. “The air quality is just too bad and we can’t envision it improving enough overnight for our students,” the school district wrote.

Wimberley ISD said the building wasn’t damaged, but part of a playscape may have been affected.
