Underlying drought, critical fuel dryness, and elevated to critical fire weather combined to produce a fire environment supportive of increased fire activity. Active fire behavior and group torching have been observed.

Flight detection reported the fire at 1:41 pm and multiple local fire departments and state resources, including Texas A&M Forest Service (TAMFS) and Texas Department of Transportation, are assisting in suppression efforts. An aviation resource was ordered to assist. TAMFS is in unified command.
