Huxley, Shelbyville VFDs Fight Fire on FM 417

August 4, 2022 - Huxley VFD and Shelbyville VFD responded to a grass/brush fire at the intersection of FM 417 and CR 2515 shortly after 6pm August 3, 2022. On arrival, it was discovered that a previous fire had rekindled and spread outside the original containment lines.

Firefighters worked the fire until crews from Texas Forest Service and the US Forest Service could arrive to assist. Thankfully a quick response from firemen allowed the fire to be contained with minimum spread.

We would like to remind our community that the fire danger remains HIGH and looks to be that way for a while. Please refrain from doing any outside burning or activities that may cause a spark.
