Arrington Issues Statement on Fires in Taylor County

WASHINGTON, DC— Today, Rep. Jodey Arrington (TX-19) issued the following statement regarding the fires that started Tuesday evening between Coronado’s Camp and View:

“Praying for West Texas and our first responders as they fight the wildfires burning throughout Taylor County. I have spoken with Taylor County elected officials, Governor Abbott’s office, and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) about how we can best support their efforts. I am grateful for their tireless efforts.”

The Taylor County Sheriff’s Office has been overwhelmed with 911 calls for status updates and this is tying up life-saving resources. Do not call 911 unless there is a life-threatening emergency. For status updates please refer to the Taylor County Sheriff’s Facebook page or Texas A&M Forest Service website.

For assistance:
