Somervell County Volunteer Fire firefighters battled a blaze near Wisenbaker Ranch on April 9 - the same day many counties in North Texas battled intense fires that claimed homes, property and lives in the state.

Crews were called to help out at a Hood County fire at 2p.m. at the Tolar High School football field.

At 3:30 p.m., firefighters had to leave the scene to respond to two other fires burning in Somervell County, including the one pictured above.
