Good sized one off old reliance, small one off Wallis and another small one off MLK. Bryan, and 2 VFDs on scene

So many yesterday afternoon/evening they thought someone was driving around setting them.

After I posted this I got the scoop quickly as the Wallis fire was basically in our backyard

Per my firefighter husband, more likely a vehicle or trailer going down the road with a chain or something similar dragging, creating sparks and causing the fires. It doesn't take much with everything being so dry.

People flicking their heaters out the window.

We called 911 on the one in front of Siena next to the old church that looks like a trap house. we happened to be the first to catch it as we headed to 6

I stopped to make sure the residents in there knew and we let the daycare right there know just in case bc the wind was a little heavier today than yesterday.

The dispatch said they had just
Finished one at Austins Colony (maybe a flare up from yesterday?)
It's going to be a busy weekend for fire crews when people aren't smart with fireworks this weekend

Wish they would have named his business. It's easily googled but I don't want to post it so staff doesn't pop my hand again.

His name is in the article and his business was the second thing that popped up in the Google search.

Was the first result in my Google search if you put "bryan tx" after his name. His company's website says they have been in business since the 80s, and that he is a disabled vet (I have never heard of this business, which is odd given the industry).

It Happens.. Years ago, when I was with the forest service we had a lot of fires down around Woodville, Texas, more than what would be expected. After a few dozen they determined that it was a forest service employee setting them. He admitted it and said he did it the get all the overtime hours.

Crazy people out there.

Personal residence is in a neighborhood off Old Reliance Road. Suffice to say, even if they can't connect him to the fires in that area officially.... he was probably responsible for all the fires there as well to include the one that initiated this OP.

USMC veteran -- do not know deployment history -- but maybe the heat wave took him back to Iraq and he felt he needed to see things burn.....people are weird - hope he gets some much needed help after paying his dues for this and glad more damage was not done.

the day this article released, I had just mentioned to my wife how weird it was that we had all those fires (because we drive past the residue of them every day) and nothing since with worsened conditions....

A couple of days before his little arson spree, there was a outbreak of fires around I&Gn Road and South Dowling. The fire department asked the Sheriff's office to start patrolling the area because they were convinced someone was deliberately setting them.

I'd say good chance it was him, but they might not have any way to prove it.

I just got an amber alert type of notification about it telling residents to evacuate the area immediately.

Same here, and I'm no where near that area.
