Wildfires update

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has issued a disaster declaration. 73 wildfires were reported around the state yesterday; so much is happening today that nobody seems to have a clear picture what's going on. (The National Interagency Fire Center website that would normally have much of this data is not responding.)

The biggest area hit right now according to TV and the Associated Press is Kennedale in southeastern suburban Fort Worth; several homes damaged there. Nearby in Arlington some houses were destroyed and firefighters were working to keep the flames away from apartment complexes. I haven't heard of anything toward sandy_tyras or celticdragonfly/selenite's neck of the woods (though am I reading this (unlinked) right about a plane crash near you latter two?).

More as I find it out, and am able to post (currently at work).
