Monday May 7: Livermore Ranch Complex Update

Great progress has been made over the past 48 hours and the Livermore Ranch Complex fires are both now 90% contained.   Firefighters continue to be released to go home.  Over half of the firefighters left on Saturday and those remaining will be leaving today after transitioning over to local firefighters. Texas Forest Service and local firefighters will remain until the fire is completely out.

During the fire, no structures have been destroyed and currently no evacuations are in effect. On Sunday firefighters were patrolling and monitoring the control lines in addition to putting in contingency lines on the Livermore Ranch fire.  An engine crew was dispatched early yesterday morning to address a couple of hot spots identified in the infrared overflight at Spring Mountain.  Firefighters are also patrolling and mopping up along that fireline.  Structure protection will remain in place in the Davis Mountain Resort area as usual by the Davis Mountain Resort Fire Department.

Resources assigned to the Livermore Ranch Complex included hand crews, helicopters, engines, dozers and a Type 1 incident management team.
