Wildfires Continue to Blaze in Texas

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

Tropical Storm Lee caused floods along the Gulf Coast earlier this week, but in Texas the storm's high winds ignited over 180 fires last week, leaving more than 1,000 homes in ruins. It is now the single worst wildfire in the state's history, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry has returned from the campaign trail to manage the response.

Tom Boggus, director for the Texas Fire Service and Peggy Fikac, Austin bureau chief for the San Antonio Express-News and the Houston Chronicle, report on the latest from Texas.

Texans rejoiced at the news of Tropical Lee passing their state and prayed the storm would bring rain. http://bit.ly/oOk5do
