I'm in Ohio but I'm praying for all those who are close to the burnings.

Quoting cedailey:

We live in Bastrop County TX where the biggest one is, we have been evacuated as have most of my friends and relatives.  I do still have a home to go home to, once the barricades go down, fire missed by 1 block.  It's bad, last update I saw was 600 homes completely gone, 34,000 acres destroyed, the main fire is over 25 miles x 20 miles in size.  For those of you that can't picture that, pretend that the state of Connecticut just ceased to exist. 0% contained, they say it may be another week.

OMG....yeah, we are thinking of you guys....glad you got out and you all are safe, AND that your home is safe. I have friends in bastrop...and their home is gone. BUT, they are safe... It's horrible.

This morning, the smell is SO STRONG HERE (and I'm an hour north of Dallas)

Overnight the Bastrop County Complex fire went from 0% contained to 30%, which is good.  Hoping the winds stay calm so they can get it under control.
