Marble Falls Fire Rescue Firefighter Randy Rankin sprays down a hot spot during a brushfire May 17 on Turland Drive off Rocky Road, south of Marble Falls. Fire crews from the Marble Falls department, Horseshoe Bay Fire and the Marble Falls Area Volunteer Fire Department responded to the wildfire at 2:30 p.m. The blaze came within 50 feet of a residence, but crews contained it. The fire could have been worse, but a light wind and high humidity helped firefighters keep it under control, officials said. The cause is under investigation. Staff photo by Daniel Clifton
