TRINITY COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Law enforcement have called off evacuations for Trinity County residents affected by a 250-acre wildfire Wednesday night.

The Texas Forest Service had issued recommended evacuations for residents of the North Landing Subdivision off Farm-to-Market Road 3188, but later lifted the advisory when the blaze was contained.

Families that already evacuated are being asked not to return until Thursday morning.

According to Texas Forest spokeswoman Karen Stafford, the fire was about eight miles east of Trinity and two miles south of Glendale. Earlier, containment lines were successful in protecting the Camp Olympia subdivision from the spread of a pine plantation consumed by fire.

A cause of the wildfire is unknown.

Crews with Trinity Volunteer Fire Department and Texas Forest Service will remain on the scene overnight to guard against flare-ups.

Earlier this week, the Trinity County Judge issued a burn ban for outdoor burning.
