Mist, humidity and light rain throughout the week benefited fire crews in the containment of the wildfire at Joint Base San Antonio-Camp Bullis, which was 95% contained with 3,005 acres burned as of Thursday night.

According to a press release from the 502d Air Base Wing at JBSA, “a few” buildings have been damaged as a result of the fire, which began April 9. No injuries have been reported.

The cause of the wildfire remains under investigation, said Angelina Casarez, deputy chief of public affairs.

The fire is believed to have originated in the demolition range area at Camp Bullis.

Casarez stated that risk assessments are made for all training that occurs on camp grounds, including training conducted during conditions in which fire is a danger. Training conducted on the day the fire began followed existing protocols, she said.

Fire crews will continue working through the weekend until the fire is fully contained.

Camp Bullis, located in northern Bexar County, consists of 27,000 acres of wildlands, ranges and training areas for service personnel.
