Wildfire awareness on the Pinnacle anniversary

This week marks the one year anniversary of the Pinnacle Wildfire, and Austin Fire and the Texas Forest Service want to remind everyone to take some preparations to reduce wildfire risk.

90% of wildfires in Texas are caused by humans, and wildfires are still a threat despite recent rains. Officials also recommend clearing 30 feet of defensible space around your home by removing twigs, brush, and other combustible materials.

On April 17, 2011, a wildfire started by a homeless man's campfire burned 100 acres and several homes in Oak Hill - the first urban wildfire to hit Austin.
