Wildfire activity in Texas has been spreading rapidly, with more than 280 wildfires reportedly burning nearly 10,00 acres. Ongoing hot triple-digit temperatures, low humidity and higher wind speeds create an environment perfect for fire. Regions along Interstate 35 between Dallas, Waco, Austin and San Antonio, extending west to Kerrville, Brady, Brownwood and Eastland should be on alert.
Texans should consider the following information for the weeks ahead:
- Always obey local burn bans and outdoor burning restrictions.
- Nine out of 10 wildfires are human-caused.
- Residents should stay up to date on weather conditions and use extreme caution when performing outdoor activities.
