Canadian River Fire Contained

A wildfire northeast of the Canadian River Bridge has now spread to 1,300 acres and is 90 percent contained.

The blaze is reported to have broken out Tuesday night and is thought to have been a merge of several other blazes.

The Texas A&M Forest Service has responded to assist with the fire, along with Potter County Fire 

Fire Service officials say the forward progression has been stopped and crews have completed tactical firing operations to secure containment lines.

Potter County Fire Department spokesman Steven Denny goes on to say terrain near Lake Meredith is rough, complicating fire containment
