December 31 about 10AM - The end of the year brought a brief flurry of flames whipped by winds across highway 71 from the east entrance. Drivers quickly called 911 and the fire department responded to beat down the flames before they could move beyond the ditch into the scrub and cedars behind.

Despite prohibition on bottle rockets and the like, fireworks tonight could cause spot grass fires throughout Austin given our exceptional drought and low humidity.
