A fire at the south pool of Twin Buttes Reservoir near the intersection of Knickerbocker Rd. and RM 584 forced the closing of the area to the public as Pecan Creek and Dove Creek volunteer fire departments extinguished the blaze.
The blazes’ smoke column could be seen for miles rising from the south San Angelo. The blaze consumed about 30 acres in the north area of the south pool of the reservoir.
The blaze was proclaimed extinguished just after 3:00 p.m. by the Tom Green County Sheriff’s office, and reopened to the public.
The cause off the blaze is under investigation.
