The Pineland Drive Fire started June 25, 2022 approximately 6 miles northeast of Trinity, Texas. 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.
A road closure on TX HWY 94 was put in place at 5:32PM this afternoon between Trinity and Glendale Tx. The closure has since been lifted.
