LLANO COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — A wildfire that burned 1,200 acres in Llano County since last week has finally been fully contained. The Texas Forest Services says the County Road 308 fire, which ignited Wednesday, July 18, is 100 percent contained as of Tuesday afternoon.
During the peak of the CR308 fire, crews had to ask for 500 gallons of gasoline to be donated because their next delivery wasn’t going to make it in time.
Several miles away, in Burnet County, another fire that started over the weekend along County Road 108 is currently 70 percent contained and has burned 737 acres.
Crews are actively working to create more dozer lines. On Monday, planes were being used to help drop retardant on the flames. Authorities say a hay bale that spontaneously combusted started this fire.
