Fire crews are back at the Moore Air Base inspecting the 2,900 burned acres of Hidalgo county land.
The Alton Fire Department has fire crews putting out the remaining hot spots with the help of USDA planes. Alton Fire Chief Elis Saldivar says the fire started in a warehouse on the base and flames spread to the grass. ATF helicopters are flying over the base surveying the land and the cause of the fire is still under investigation. Employees at the base will be interviewed along with surveying of the land.
