 On 7/1/2022 Texas A&M Forest Service responded to a request for assistance in Bosque County. The Harris Fire is located between Meridian and Laguna Park on Highway 22. Texas A&M Forest Service is tied in and working in unified command with the local departments. Very little precipitation has been received in this area. This, coupled with extreme heat causes the fuels to be very susceptible to fire. The fire was fast moving and burning in juniper and grass fuels with group tree torching and short runs. Many departments were on scene with brush trucks, as well as 3 forest service dozers. Air resources were ordered and the fire received water drops from Fire Boss single engine air tankers and a type one helicopter.
