West Texas on fire

Our lovely former abode is facing down a wild fire that's consumed 60,000 acres and is 0% contained. There are have been no human casualties so far, but lots of cattle and horses have lost their lives. The animal shelter Bors came from evacuated all their animals to Balmorhea. FEMA has stepped in. It's a mess.

Can you imagine several small towns' worth of volunteer fire fighters going after such a fire? Gives me shivers.

I'll give information on relief efforts and how you can help as I get more information. In the meantime, pray.
