After more than three days of burning, the Garza Co. fire is out

After more than three days of burning, the Garza County fire is out as of early Tuesday morning. Firefighters put out the last flames around 2 a.m. and are recovering after multiple days of firefighting.

The Texas Forest Services says nearly 50,000 acres have burned and the fire is thought to be intentional.

The Garza County Sheriff's office says arson investigators with the Texas Rangers and Texas Forest Service are assisting Garza County authorities and looking into claims that several fires in were intentionally started.

Deputies say a dark, older model Ford pickup truck was seen near the scene of several of those fires. They say they do have a person of interest, but that no arrests have been made or charges filed.

Authorities ask if you saw anything out of the ordinary that could help to call the Garza County Sheriff's Department at 806.495.3595.
