Potter Co. crews battle wildfire at Canadian River

Amarillo, Texas

2:00pm Sunday: The fire has rekindled at the Canadian River. Potter County authorities are standing by to help Texas Forest Service if they need assistance in putting out hot spots.


10:45pm: The fire is about 8 miles from Highway 136 and 9 miles south of the Moore County line.

Sheriff Brian Thomas says no structures are being threatened and no one is in danger.

Crews are still working to get it under control, but it's proving to be difficult because of the rough terrain.

It's burned more than 1,100 acres so far.

8:45pm: Potter County fire crews are working to contain a wildfire that sparked at the Canadian River.

All you can see from the road is the red smoke right now.

That's because it's a few miles west of Highway 136, which is making it difficult for crews to get equipment to the area to contain the flames.

No homes or buildings are in danger as of now. We have not heard any reports of road closures at this time.
