Trinity Co. fire burns 400 acres, threatens 50 homes

TRINITY COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Trinity County fire is 100 percent contained after burning 400 acres Wednesday evening.

The fire, named Dads Creek Fire, threatened 50 homes in the North Landing Subdivision off Farm-to-Market Road 3188. Families were evacuated but allowed to return Thursday morning.

"Hopefully, we'll get some rain from the tropical storm and put a damper on it," said Karen Stafford of the Texas Forest Service.

According to 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.
