On Saturday, July 23, at approximately 3 p.m., Williamson County Emergency Services District No. 4 responded to a report of a small vegetation fire in the 2100 block of Tower Road., Liberty Hill. Crews arrived on scene and observed an approximately one acre in size open field involved with fire, spreading rapidly to a heavily dense area of vegetation. Due to the terrain and the rapid growth of the fire, additional agencies were requested.

Twenty-four area agencies responded to the fire to assist in the initial operations. Forward progression of the fire was stopped during the night and crews began overhaul of the fire area. Due to the rough terrain, heavy vegetation and the amount of acres involved crews remained on scene until July 27 to completely extinguish the fire.
