NEWS UPDATE- SPICEWOOD WILDFIRES
"Fires in our District cover an area 5 miles by 2 miles. More than 100 Firefighters from 14 different departments are working the fire. Fire is 80% contained. More than 60 structures have been damaged. Hwy 71 West (from Pace Bend Park Road) is still closed".- Pedernales Fire Department Facebook Page.
We are not evacuating Briarcliff- the wind is still keeping the fire away from us. There are some flare-ups in the Fall Creek area, but Briarcliff is in a safe zone, and there are many resources fighting it. Staging is being done from our area and that is why there is a high concentration of law enforcements nearby. If, however, evacuations were to occur in the future for this or another event you would be contacted by reverse 9-1-1 on your land line.
