Busy start to week for Seguin Fire/EMS
Posted on 7/13/2016 7:13:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- It was a busy day Monday for Seguin firefighters. Seguin Fire/EMS officials battle a couple of grass fires, and were also called out to reports of smoke in the bottom of a local church.
Seguin Fire Marshal Greg Driess says the grass fire on State Highway 123 burned not just acreage, but also a shed.
"Just before five o'clock, we got called for a grass fire that was threatening a structure before we could go in route, this advised structure had become involved. We went in route to see heavy smoke already showing. We started calling for extra assets. All of our assets were already deployed to a grass fire on the Geronimo area. We had to reach out to New Braunfels to Cibolo, Lake Dunlap, Sand Hills to bring in brush trucks and tankers to help us out to  -- let us get a handle on it. We also had New Braunfels come in with their engine to stand by and our central station and a brush truck and a command vehicle to come help us as well. The fire was contained in about an hour's time. No injuries reported and the only thing that was damaged -- structure wise --  was a shed. None of the homes were damaged. There was several vehicles that were damaged from the fire, they appear to be not running before the fire," said Driess.
Firefighters were also called out to Emmanuel's Lutheran Church in downtown Seguin, where there was a report of smoke in the lower portion of the building. There were several emergency vehicles on scene Monday night. Driess says it turned out to be a small electrical problem inside the church. He says fortunately, it was not a dangerous or serious situation.
