I lived in southern California for many years and experienced some hellacious wildfires. But as bad as they were, they pale before what Texas is going through now. The fire near Austin destroyed 300 homes in one day. You’d had to go back to 1961 and the apocalyptic Bel-Air fire to find worse damage than that.
But there are sixty fires in Texas now, not just one, and no end to the drought that anyone can predict. That means no end to the fires.
