Spring Branch Fire Department Fire Chief [Austin Beaudoin, who was in charge at the scene, made the dec ision to call in the Texas Torest S<Tvice. "The terrain was too rough and the cedar was t(K) thick," Fllington said. "Dustin made the smart decision that we needed air support."

"It costs $250,000 a day to run that bird," Ellington said. The Forest Service's aid was provided at no cost to Comal (x)unty, he said. The Forest Service also supplied an airliorne cf>m-mand f)lane, which cir< led alK>ve the fire and fliriH tc'd the choppc'r as well as ground forces.
