Another Grass Fire On Mustang Island

PORT ARANSAS, Texas - Firefighters were busy yesterday afternoon with a large grass fire in Port Aransas.  The blaze stretched from Hwy 361 westward towards the bay.  The location is directly across the Highway from the Pioneer RV Beach Resort.  No homes were damaged in the fire.  

Dune grasses are very dry as the drought conditions continue. The island has received less that one inch of rainfall year-to-date.

Oh no that doesn't look good.

Fires keep my husband up all night when he's working so I REALLY don't like them.

So we need to continue to do the rain dance, huh?

I should have known that the RE/MAX Access team would be working on Sunday...Mother's Day.  We really need rain and there is none in the forecast.  I just found out that a spark from the overhead electrical lines along the hwy started the fire.

I was happy to help your folks and I wish them the best with the new venture.  They were kind enough to provide some Krusty's Pizza money...I just had some leftover pizza for lunch.  Good Stuff!

Keith - That looks awful!  Thank goodness no homes were damaged!  Hopefully you will get rain soon!

  I saw this right after it had started. It went up pretty quickly. I am a photographer near Austin and I took some pics too. The police wouldn't let me too close but I still captured some of it on film!
