This is the time of year when we start to see wild fire danger increase because of dry vegetation and high winds.It was just last week when there was a large wildfire in Schleicher county.
Rural areas are not the only ones in danger of seeing a wildfire
Tom Green county emergency management coordinator Steve Mild says people living inside the city limits should also take precaution by creating a defensible space around your home.
Steve Mild says, “People talk about wildfires and think that it is a country or rural thing and it’s not. If you don't have that defensible space around your home. the firefighters can't fight that fire.”
Mild also says to make sure the area is clear of debris and dead leaves.
