Texas Wildfire Update – Nine Fires Burning

A fast-moving fire in Ft. Davis, Texas, has burned more than 25,000 acres and destroyed 50 homes. There has been no containment of the fire so far, no doubt due to the high winds and dry conditions. Firefighters say the conditions are “not good” for containing the fire, and forecasters say tomorrow looks no better, according to WGME.com.

Firefighters continue to fight a uncontrolled blazes in King, Stonewall, and Knox Counties in Texas. Nine fires are burning according to the Texas Forest Service, and the high winds are a factor in trying to control these fires. Please see my previous posts on the fire today. I have maps of areas of extreme drought and a map showing Texas counties.
