Smithville residents instructed to evacuate while fire crews contain large brush fire overnight

People living east of Bastrop are breathing a sigh of relief this morning after a big fire near Smithville was controlled late last night. An out of control fire possibly caused by arcing power lines had some Bastrop County residents on edge.  James Elam is the Smithville Fire Chief and says they took no chances. It took several hours of Star Flight dumping water on the flames and cutting fire lines to keep the fire from spreading.
