Rhoades Ranch Fire (Unpublished)

Posted by Jackie Fewell on (Unpublished).

June 14, 2011 - there is a new fire, the Rhoades Ranch Fire, burning west of Hwy 337 and north of Hwy 180. 

Folks around PK Lake can see the large plumes of smoke.  According to the Texas Forest Service's InciWeb site, the fire has burned approximately 750 acres and has a high potential for growth due to weather conditions (high temps and low humidity).  The cause of the fire is not yet known.

The fire jumped the 101 road and is north of Hwy 180, approximately 3/4 mi from Hwy 337 as of 9 pm last night.  According to the Lake Country Sun, It had worked its way west of Dye Lane south of Graford, and firefighters were working to save a residence.  We will provide updates as information becomes available.

Some people waiting to be let in were saying the fire had jumped the Brazos onto the north side. Does anyone have any updates?
