Drive Carefully Central Texas: Wildfires Are Back
Temperatures are on the rise in Texas, and that means dangerous wildfires are about to become a near daily occurrence here.
Several brush fires were spotted today (June 21) along eastbound Highway 190/Interstate 14 just outside the campus of Central Texas College, causing state troopers to close several exits leading into CTC and Clear Creek Road due to increasing smoke on the roadway.
Now is a good time to remind you that if you spot a brush fire or wild fire burning to contact 911 immediately, because that small fire can turn into a huge inferno that could take over the entire area as we've seen several times over in the last few years. Be careful!
