A burning pile of mulch XIII

Time for an update on the mulch fire in Helotes. The good news is, everything is going well, and the fire that has been burning since Christmas Day should be out in a couple of weeks.

From KSAT:

SAN ANTONIO -- Firefighting crews in Helotes have reduced a huge burning pile of mulch by 25 percent and officials said the fire should be completely extinguished in two weeks. ...

Officials from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality said it appears the water is not seeping into the Edwards Aquifer.

That's good for everyone, especially the residents of that town. I just wonder if it will be awhile before they can stomach a big fat link of smoked sausage.
