Belvedere Subdivision Brush Fire Burns 600 Acres in Western Travis County

A 600 acre brush fire in the Belvedere subdivision off of Hamilton Pool Road in southwestern Travis County was sparked by a welder working in the area Wednesday afternoon. The brush fire quickly became three-alarms as two Travis County emergency rescue helicopters outfitted with water buckets were called in to help control the blaze. Minor injuries were reported and a few structures were threatened.
