As of Monday afternoon, the brush fire at Camp Bullis is now 70% contained. No occupied structures have burned and officials do not expect the blaze to grow past the Camp Bullis property.
While and investigation could take a few weeks to complete, Joint Base San Antonio officials say the fire began in an active training area. Service members training in the area were pulled back to safe distances. Fire departments from across JBSA, Leon Creek, Bulverde, Shavano Park, Texas A&M Forest Service, and several other departments from the surrounding area worked through the weekend to contain the fire.
JBSA-Camp Bullis comprises more than 27,000 acres of ranges, training areas, and wild-lands on San Antonio’s North side and is a crucial training location for service members from Joint Base San Antonio.
