Scary Wildfire Video of Bastrop State Park

Categories: Texas
All but about 100 acres of the 6,000-acre Bastrop State Park have been blackened by fire, the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department says, and they've posted this video to show why.

With surprising alacrity, a fire creeps across the land, with nothing to stop it and wind to push it along.

And that is why you evacuate when you get the word.

I had been to Bastrop State Park a couple of times with the family. This is so heartbreaking and frightening.  I really don't know what to say to everyone who lost their homes and businesses, but I hope their recovery will be swift and they get all the assistance they need.
