This Texas flag was flying at the entrance to a large ranch that sits on the borders of King County and Knox County. I could see live flames only about a mile from the entrance. The roads were blocked off so I couldn’t get much closer but the fire has consumed hundreds of acres already and they have to evacuate a few small country towns. It’s hard to get enough water to these remote areas to extinguish anything like this. The fire started when a car started smoking and the driver pulled off the highway onto a grassy area. Brisk winds added to the already extremely dry conditions.
