Texas Battling Wildfires Fueled By Heat, Wind

DALLAS (AP) - Out-of-control wildfires in Texas have scorched nearly 400 square miles and destroyed dozens of homes as hot, windy conditions fuel the blazes.

One fast-moving wildfire in West Texas had spread to more than 60,000 acres Sunday in Jeff Davis County and destroyed about 40 homes in Fort Davis before it raged north and east.

Texas Forest Service spokesman Alan Craft says another West Texas fire burned 16,000 acres in Midland County and destroyed about 34 homes. Crafty says a 71,000-acre fire in Northern Texas hadn't destroyed any homes because it was in a rural area of rolling plains.

Craft says the Federal Emergency Management Agency is expected to respond to some of the state's massive fires. Texas is also getting help from firefighters from two dozen other states.
