A fire near Stockdale consumed two acres of grass and seven round bales of hay July 8 before emergency crews were able to get it under control.

Emergency calls started going out around 3 p.m. to the Stockdale, Poth, and Floresville volunteer fire departments to converge on a farm along F.M. 537 near C.R. 409, where the residents had been baling hay. Along with a water tanker from Wilson County Precinct 2, they were able to contain the blaze.

While the exact cause of the fire is unknown, it was likely started by the baling machinery itself, according to Stockdale Fire Chief Edwin Baker.

Kudos to those who helped put out the fire. With the extreme heat and gusty winds, this could have gotten out of control. Thank you, volunteer firefighters.
