ELMENDORF -- Multiple fire departments from both sides of the Bexar-Wilson county line continue their fight against a massive Aug. 17 wildfire that officials say burned more than 100 acres off Old Corpus Christi Road.

An Elmendorf police officer reported spotting the fire at approximately 5:30 p.m. while responding to another call. Lt. James Friant of the China Grove Volunteer Fire Department said the flames claimed an abandoned house. But firefighters from eight departments were able to prevent the blaze from spreading to three inhabited homes -- from which occupants were evacuated -- and the Brenntag chemical plant near the intersection of Loop 1604 and Old Corpus Christi Road.

Freight railroad service and electricity in the area remains shut down as of 9:30 p.m., as firefighters remained at the scene. Friant expects the "mop up" stage to continue for at least another hour.
