AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Today marks a year since the deadly wildfires ravaged the Panhandle.
Agrilife reported $25.1 million in losses of land, structure and livestock after more than 521,000 acres burned across the Texas Panhandle. After losing around 4,000 animals, farmers and ranchers had to pay to properly dispose of carcasses.
1,000 miles of fence needed replacement. To put that into perspective, that's about the distance from Amarillo to Atlanta.
The community came together to rally behind those who lost much of their livelihood in the fires as hay donations poured in from across the country.
While the community continues to recover from these tragic events, the memories will never be forgotten.
