After my first full day with the Texas State Fire Marshal's office, I spent Saturday on a continuation of the Bastrop Fire post review. Take a look at the photos below from the day. 

Incident Command Post

I attended a daily incident briefing at the Community Center where the Incident Command Post had been established. Lots of progress being made, but plenty of work to do going forward.

Staging Area

This is a small sample of the fire apparatus at the Staging area. President Obama declared the Bastrop area a Disaster area Friday night, which should bring many more resources to the area. 

Smoke still sits in the areas where the fire pasted a few days ago

State Forest

Firewise Home
A home that was destroyed in a previous fire survives the Bastrop Fire. Firewise principles in place.
