FLORESVILLE -- Firefighters from both stations of the Floresville Volunteer Fire Department are fighting triple-digit temperatures and a stubborn blaze on C.R. 117 near the San Antonio River.

J.W. Shiflett said he reported the fire at 2:55 p.m. He was setting corners for a new fence nearby when he saw smoke. Shiflett said he drove up to investigate when he realized that an abandoned barn was ablaze.

Wind swept the flames to the roadway and up a hill to a vacant farmhouse, which was also consumed. An active electrical connection and the lack of available water nearby hampered firefighters’ efforts to save the structure.

As of 4:43 p.m., firefighters from the Floresville Volunteer Fire Department and the Floresville-Cañada Verde Volunteer Fire Department remained at the scene.

It must have blazed back up - around 8:30 - I called 911. It looked under control when I was driving back home. ... but, boy, it was exploding when I first saw it at 8:30 pm!! Stay safe all.
