HOT DAMN! NOW THE $#@!ING CAVALRY IS ON THE WAY!
good job Lat! i had given up watching flightaware a couple of hours ago....
better late than never and kudos to go to whoever is responsible for cutting the red tape and getting that bird to bergstrom!
Did I just hear that right on the scanner, "I had to shoot him."
Leander fire thought to be arson, looking for 4 teenagers.
They keep sending units to Mustang Chase, wonder if they are replacements or supplemental.
My boyfriend's sister and her family live right off of 304 in Bastrop. Their house is okay....for now. Still some scary $#@! going on out there.
My sister just texted me and said Middlebrook Apts on 183 /Cypress just caught fire.
I hope I'm not spreading disinfo.
CEDAR PARK, Texas - Firefighters in Cedar Park are battling an apartment fire in the 330 block of CR 182, near Highway 183.
The fire started just after 7:30 p.m. at the Middlebrook Gardens Apartments.
KXAN crews report that two apartment buildings are fully involved and people are evacuating the units.
how do they fill those up? i'm assuming it's a little large to do the lake scoop technique?
I think they use fire redardant rather than water.
This is the complex on fire in CP. Turn the picture 90 degrees counterclockwise to make it orient better.
Here is the google link:
There's a huge retardant mine in College Station.
"Stopping the active hotspot treatment out near the Perd. River due to darkness"
What does that mean, for those of us who don't know firefighting vernacular?
It sounds like the crew is new to the area and they don't want to work them in the dark until they know the terrain. They are going around in brush trucks with hoses putting out areas that still are burning.
In other news, APD isn't doing search warrants today. The combination of fire and apd radio on the same feed is strange to listen to.
Good God these firefighters...
What great people they are.
See if this works. It's linking from facebook and I don't think that works here.
home depot with the flag, consumer spending is the American way, patriotic and $#@!.
what's the word O&W? dad's place in tag? friends near hamilton's pool road in N. Hays are ready to evacuate but haven't been called. I've lost track of perd #1 today. bastrop too for that matter, $#@! SR too.
what's the general lowdown?
Dad's place is all good. They don't have power so they are still sleeping in Horseshoe Bay. I was talking to him as he was pulling into the driveway at his own house and his wife was standing in the field yelling at a TCSO Officer about where they needed to send trucks. He said there was visible flame being fought on 71, but that road was open. Paleface Ranch was still closed but he came in the back way (from Opies). He said there was still little plumes of smoke coming up all over the open field across from his place.
I heard on the scanner earlier, around dark, that they were shifting into a monitoring mode due to darkness. I assumed that to mean they would just drive around looking for flames. I'd take that as a good day of fighting fires.
I heard the stand down orders too. glad to hear things are okay for now at least.
that vid above is nuts. saw it earlier.
Not too many words to describe that picture above.
Tons of heartache in that pic.
I live in the complex in CP that caught fire. Indoor fire. Thankfully, my place is okay.
That sucks Bananas. Have they figured out what caused it?
