North and West Texas Goes Poof!
There is a worse fire burning in far North Texas that is about 165 square miles in size. There's likely no relief in sight. It is thought that a pipe cutter started the North Texas fire. The cause of the Fort Davis fire is unknown, but it's likely some idiot disposed of a lit cigarette butt. Texas had a rather wet year last year and an extremely dry winter and spring, so there was lots of dry vegetation ready to combust.

He's fine. They have power, though my sister and her husband took a generator to them. Here's a picture of the fire:

Thanks for your concern,
My only memory of West Texas, stretching back to 1975, was visiting a Dairy Queen in San Angelo. Very welcome on a hot day.
