A large fire in the ditch and trees near south William D. Tate Avenue is happening right now (July 19th, 2012). The Grapevine Fire Department pulled up just as we were snapping these photos.
At first, we believed the fire might be near one of the over-passes being built by the DFW Connector. After getting closer, the fire appeared to be past the construction and more in the ditch area. With it being so dry lately, a fire in a heavily treed area could cause problems for the fire department. We did see power lines in the area that were on fire as well.
The location of the fire was off of William D. Tate Avenue on the 121 service road south of Bone Daddy’s and south of Mustang Drive.
