Update: Green Substance in Drainage Ditches

Screen Shot 2021-02-25 at 2.45.00 PM

Due to yesterday’s structure fire on Oak Rd, residents living on the island might notice a green color in some drainage ditches. 

The City of Clear Lake Shores has restricted some drainage to contain this material, and has sent samples for testing. Based on initial assessments, this material does not appear to be a health threat. 

The United States Coast Guard is handling the removal of this substance since it has reached the waters of Clear Lake in some form.  An independent contractor should have the ditches clean by the end of the day.  Be aware of increased traffic and personnel.

The Fire Marshal’s Office continues to investigate the fire.  We will provide additional information as necessary and when available.


On Wednesday, February 24, the Kemah Fire Department and the Clear Lake Shores Police Department responded to a call regarding a residential fire on Oak Rd, in Clear Lake Shores. 

Due to the heavy fire coming from multiple sides of the 3 1/2 story house, firefighters decided to make a defensive fire attack. All residents were reported to be out of the building upon Fire Department arrival and no injuries have been reported at this time. 

More than 20 firefighters manning four (4) engines, two (2) ladder trucks, one (1) rehab unit, and one (1) ambulance responded to the scene. The Clear Lake Shores Police Department, League City Fire Department, Seabrook Fire Department, and Galveston County EMS assisted the Kemah Fire Department at the incident. The Seabrook Fire Marshal’s Office is currently assisting with the investigation.

The fire caused extensive damage to the home, including the two-story detached garage. The cause of fire is still under investigation.
