KRTS Marfa just spoke with Jim Fowler of the Fort Davis Volunteer Fire Department. The Tejano Canyon Fire is still at only 10% containment. This morning, the Texas Forest Service regional fire coordinators from El Paso and Fort Stockton flew over the fire in a DPS helicopter. From their estimates, the fire has now burned 2,978 acres. About 500 acres burned last night.

As of 10:30 AM, the wind is moving from the south at 15 to 20 miles per hour. This is pushing the fire towards the Nature Conservancy’s Davis Mountains Preserve. Numerous Texas Forest Service resources are on the ground and in the air, in addition to local fire departments. Stay tuned to 93.5 FM and our website for the most up to date information.
