Bastrop Wildfire Expands, East Texans Under Fire Watch [VIDEO]

Subscribe to Newstalk 860 on

It’s dry across Texas and conditions are expected to get even more favorable through the weekend for the breakout of wildfires. 

A cool front with no associated precipitation is expected to move across East Texas throughout the day bringing with it relative humidity values below 30 percent and wind speeds gusting up to 20 MPH.  This along with dry vegetation will lead to high fire danger area wide which has led the National Weather Service to issue a Fire Weather Watch through the weekend.

Unfortunately, this will also add fuel to the Hidden Pines Fire in Bastrop County that to date has burned nearly 5,000 acres, claimed over 30 homes, and is only 25% contained.  Several fires broke out across East Texas on Thursday, the largest was in Anderson County which burned 125 acres.  Thankfully, all of the East Texas fires are 100% contained.
