MARBLE FALLS — Firefighters battling a 370-acre blaze this weekend found themselves facing rough terrain and high temperatures before bringing the wildfire under control after three days.

“It was really difficult for a couple of reasons,” said Terry White, chief of the Marble Falls Area Volunteer Fire Department. “First it was a night fire that actually intensified after the sun went down — which is rare. Usually after the sun goes down the humidity goes up and a fire gets less intense. And then there was the terrain. There were rocks out there the size of our (brush) trucks.”
