Field of fire

Joshua Sebastian, of the Brenham Fire Department, rides through a field as he helps put out a grass fire that started Thursday off Krotofil Lane in Chappell Hill. Incident commander and Salem Fire Department Assistant Chief Ricky Abernathy said strong winds and hot, dry conditions led to the ignition of some brush piles. The fire spread across several acres of land before Brenham, Chappell Hill, Bellville, Salem and Meyersville Volunteer Fire Departments, as well as the Washington County Citizens Response Team, arrived to extinguish it.
