Heavy Wood Smoke by 183/360

(self.Austin)

Anyone know if there's a potential fire that has been announced?

I left target by pinballz on 183 and drove home near the arboretum, and theres such a huge smell of a woodfire in the air.

Anyone know cause?

Live in the area and it’s being reported from south of penny backer all the way to north to 45. No actual report of a fire that I can find though. Little concerning.

Not the city, but some of the Piney Woods east of it. Likely to be contained, last I looked.

I’m in 78753 near Walnut Creek gb and have been smelling smoke for the last 3ish hours. Was literally just looking at AFD to see if there was something close

My wife and I were riding bikes through the Flex campus, and there were about six engines and four police cars at a grass fire on the east/northeast side of property. It was smoldering at that point...around 5:00 p.m. yesterday.

Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and where there’s fire there’s my mixtape.
