Fire personnel at Big Bend National Park were quick to respond to a small wildfire caused by wind-downed power lines in the Chisos Mountains. The fire was contained at approximately 7:00 PM on Thursday, February 23, and crews from Rio Grande Electric were on scene to replace the damaged pole and repair the lines by Friday morning. The fire danger is currently at critical warning levels due to strong winds and low humidity. Acting Deputy Superintendent Rick Gupman expressed gratitude for the fast response of the park’s fire management team, which prevented the spread of the fire and averted a potentially major disaster.
