Wildfires in Spring Cause Evacuations

The Houston area has been mostly spared the wildfires that have been hitting other parts of Texas, but an abnormally large grass fire is causing problems this afternoon in Spring.

The blaze is near FM 1960 and the Hardy Toll Road, which should also make the afternoon commute a pleasure.

According to tweets from various media members, homes on two streets in the Breckenridge Forest subdivision have been ordered to evacuate, and Spring ISD has been asked to open some schools as temporary shelters. About 200 homes have been ordered to be evacuated.

If you live in or near the affected areas, turn on your TV or get on the Web to keep updated.
