Texas gets wildfire help from feds

Amarillo, Texas - Texas is getting $31 million from the federal government to help us recover from the worst wildfire season in state history.

Most of that money will going to the devastated Bastrop County, near Austin.

The drought-fed and wind-driven fire began Labor Day weekend, killed two people and destroyed about 15-hundred homes.

In the Panhandle region, wildfires scorched thousands of acres and devoured dozens of homes.

State-wide nearly four million acres were burned, about four thousand structures destroyed, and ten people were killed in those vicious blazes.
