Brahman Ranch burn
Corpus Christi, Texas – In a Facebook post, the Rockport Center for Public Safety confirmed that thick smoke billowing from the north was caused by a controlled burn on their Brahman ranch in Refugio County.
This is a controlled, controlled burn as part of farm maintenance.
It is only today’s strong south winds that carry smoke to the area.
Here’s why the smoke persists in Corpus Christi
Smoke lingers in Corpus Christi after burning 8,000 acres in Refugio County on Saturday.
The Rockport Center for Public Safety said in a Facebook post that Brahman’s farm in Refugio County was conducting a “major controlled burn” that carried thick smoke southward.
An employee of the Refugio County Sheriff’s Office told the Caller-Times that the cremation began early Saturday morning and was closed at noon. She said smoke would continue in the area.
An alert from the city of Corpus Christi said the Corpus Christi Fire Hazmat team has sampled air quality and is reporting that the current air condition is within acceptable limits.
