Things have changed in Buffalo Gap. The town took on a community-wide effort to become grassfire-free.
"Because of the things that have been done by the Forest Services and by the Fire Department and by the property owners in and around Buffalo Gap clearing brush and undergrowth and grass and weeds and those kinds of things," said Buffalo Gap mayor David Perry.
Buffalo Gap is now known as a "Firewise Community," meaning the town has done everything it can to prevent grassfires. And it's been quite a success.
"By the efforts of the firewise community of cleaning and everything, we hadn't had not one single grassfire in the city of Buffalo Gap in the last year," Sowell said.
