A $406,000 federal grant will help Texas fund temporary jobs as cleanup and recovery efforts continue from devastating 2011 wildfires.
State parks officials have kicked off a campaign to raise money to replace millions of the signature trees that were lost a year ago when wildfires tore through the Lost Pines State Park and surrounding areas.
The American Red Cross is out in force today looking for people who need help after Sunday night’s violent storms. Teams are being sent out into the field to help ensure residents know there is assistance available.

Call it a multi-million dollar spark. Fire investigators have pinpointed the cause of the August/September grass fires at Possum Kingdom Lake.
It was the most destructive wildfire in Texas history. A raging fire destroyed more than 1,500 homes near Bastrop. While recovery will take months, some North Texas students stepped up to lend their support.
A grass fire destroyed several buildings in the southern Tarrant County community of Rendon Friday.
The temperatures across North Texas are out of the triple digits, but local fire officials are still concerned with the potential for wildfires.
The wildfires burning near Possum Kingdom Lake are now 60-percent contained. Officials have lifted evacuation orders for Gaines Bend and Sportsman’s World.
People who have lost their homes along Possum Kingdom Lake will soon be getting help from the American Red Cross. Thursday’s mission into Palo Pinto County will be the first since the fires and there’s a very specific reason why.
