Bastrop County Texas

The Texas Forest Service warns that the arrival of a cold front Sunday afternoon will create more dangerous wildfire conditions across Texas.
The number of homes destroyed by a Texas wildfire has risen to 1,554 and is expected to further increase as officials enter more areas where the blaze has been extinguished, officials said Sunday. Seventeen people remain unaccounted for.
There has been no rest for the weary. Little Elm firefighters Jeremy Wilson and Trent Espinosa have jumped from fire to fire. First, they tackled last week’s Possum Kingdom Lake fire. Now they find themselves in Bastrop.
