The Schwartz Fire, which is located about 20 miles east of Marathon, TX, originated on the afternoon of Saturday May 7. Firefighters have been using fire engines, bulldozers and aircraft to supress the fire as it burns along the Brewster/Pecos county line.

Some of the Schwartz Fire resources were pulled to combat the Gage Holland Fire on Sunday.
