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.
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.
