A large column of smoke billowed high into the sky as flames devoured about 50 acres on Thursday just east of Seguin.
The fire was reported just before noon on Interstate 10 near the 614 mile-marker.
However, dry vegetation, low humidity and winds pushed the fire deep into the brush, Seguin Fire Marshal Greg Dreiss said.

To Whom It May Concern,
This letter is being generated to show my support of the McQueeney Volunteer Fire Department on their endeavors of upgrading their fire station. The history of the McQueeney VFD has always been strong and positive for the McQueeney community.

I am beyond honored that my fellow ff and I were able to come pay our respects to our brother. The amount of personal out here was amazing. Not just fd. Pd came in full force too. There is no doubt we lost one of the best. It’s never easy to explain to people why things like this mean so much to us and why our hearts hurt when we have lost another. We don’t have to know each other personally in this field to know we are all family or care about each other. The overwhelming gratitude that we have received from long beach fd and other local California fd’s really puts things into perspective. They are very appreciative of the firefighters who have traveled to be here but it feels like we should be the one thanking them. They invited us to celebrate a brothers life. I will forever remember the stories that were shared and the legacy that Captain Rosa left behind. Many people were blessed to be involved with such a great guy and have forever been changed by this. But like always every firefighter will get back on that truck and do their job without hesitation to continue to honor our brother. R.I.P. Captain Rosa.
From the Seguin Gazette:

At approximately 21:53 May 9th, 2018 we responded to a motor vehicle/pedestrian accident on Terminal Loop Road. We assisted Seguin EMS with patient care and established a landing zone at the Lions Club for Methodist Air Care 4. Great teamwork by everyone on scene including GCSO deputies and Texas DPS troopers.
At approximately 6:15 PM on April 14, we were dispatched for a confirmed structure fire in the 9000 block of FM 725. One engine, our rescue truck, two brush trucks and 10 firefighters responded to the fire. Upon arrival, we found a large garage/storage building fully involved in fire. Due to the large volume of fire, we requested tankers from Seguin, Marion and Lake Dunlap fire departments. GCSO and Fire Marshal also responded. All units were clear of the scene by 9:15 PM.
