Fire Montgomery and 1496

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Alayne Brooks, Re/Max Elite Group, Wichita Falls Texas

We had an appointment yesterday afternoon in College Station with the Doctor at Scott and White off Highway 6. Our normal route is to swing around from Bentwater, hit 105 off 149 and just cruise all the way to Hwy 6. Easy does it. As we were just getting started on our trip yesterday, after driving just a few miles beyond Montgomery, the view changed drastically and in a split second. Looking off towards FM 1496 a huge billowing cloud was mushrooming from the trees. Montgomery Fire off 1496

Scott and I couldn't help but feel awful and a pain in our hearts hit hard when it sunk in what we were seeing. We were witnessing a brand new wildfire. And, it was spreading fast. As we began to discuss what we should do the Firetrucks, sirens and lights became visible. We were glad the firefighters were on their way!
I believe this fire is under control after burning 1600 acres and destroying 100 homes.

Please rain.

Oh no!  When I saw your picture, I was thinking that I'd never seen a cloud like that before.  

I'm praying you all get some rain soon.

The fires have just been awesome South of here. I know the feeling you had because we experienced it a lot in California. Seems there were always brush fires out there.

OH Deb, my heart and prayers go out to you and to your community. I wish we could send you some of our water. We have had enough and would love to generously share, but somehow it is not that easy. Peace!
