Fire burns in park

Posted: Thursday, May 30, 2019 8:53 am | Updated: 8:55 am, Thu May 30, 2019.

As of Wednesday morning, a wildland fire at Big Bend National Park was 90% contained, with about 1,300 acres burned since last Wednesday. The Los Diablos fire crew remained in the park, working to put out the last of the hot spots within the perimeter.

On May 22, a wildland fire burning in Mexico jumped the Rio Grande and sparked a blaze near Castolon, causing damage to historic buildings and forcing closures throughout the southern area of the park. High afternoon temperatures and low humidity helped the fire spread.
