CEDAR CREEK, Texas (KXAN) — Firefighters successfully put out a 60 acre grass fire near Cedar Creek. Crews will remain at the scene overnight to monitor.
Multiple agencies and STAR Flight were called to the scene on Donlee Drive — about two miles south of Cedar Creek — after the fire was reported at 2:52 p.m. Wednesday.
The fire started when someone was welding a metal fence. Because the welder was not doing anything illegal, Bastrop County ESD 1 Assistant Chief David Gahagan says the person will not be charged or cited.
Multiple structures are in the area, which is heavily wooded, but no structures were in danger.
