Weather conditions could worsen Texas wildfires

TEXAS (AP) - There are dire warnings today about hot dry conditions as wildfires continue to rage out of control in Texas.

The biggest fire is around 125 square miles and was sparked by pipe cutting. Another blaze destroyed several structures in Fort Davis.

Volunteer firefighter Jim Fowler called the blaze the worst he has seen in 13 years.

Mark Stanford, fire operations chief for the Texas Forest Service, had a gloomy outlook for today. He says more dry, windy conditions are expected to prevail, possibly hindering the firefighting effort.
