MARLIN, Texas — About 10 to 15 homes were evacuated earlier Tuesday because of a nearly 100-acre fire that was burning in Falls County, according to Emory Johnson, the spokesperson for Texas A&M Forest Service.
The fire, which is being called the Bulldog Fire, sparked near Highway 6 and 382 County Road 220 in the afternoon. Johnson believes it was started after some power lines rubbed up against some trees, causing some buildings to catch fire.
As of 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, the fire was 92 acres and 95 percent contained.
A total of two buildings were destroyed by the fire and there are no injuries, Johnson said.
Responding agencies plan to patrol the area overnight and re-examine Wednesday morning.
