McDannald Fire now 100-percent contained

JEFF DAVIS COUNTY -- A wildfire that grew to be larger than 22,000 acres has now contained.

Emily Hendryx says that her husband took these photos as he and many other ranchers worked close to 20 hours helping to fight the spread of the fire.

The Texas A&M Forest Service reports that the McDannald Fire near Fort Davis is 100-percent contained as of Monday.

The fire itself now sits at just over 19,000 acres in size.

Hundreds of firefighters from across the state and even Mexico came to help fight the fire.

While homes at the Davis Mountain Resort and the Crow's Nest community were threatened none were lost. Some non-residential buildings were destroyed by the fire.

It's believed that the blaze was started by a lightning strike.
