Amarillo, Texas - It's hard to believe it's already been a month since those massive wildfires started in Bastrop County.

While the fire may now be over, the cleanup is just beginning. 1600 were affected so the amount of debris is expansive, to say the least.

The cleanup is expected to last anywhere from six months to a year. And it's not a cheap ordeal.

The county predicts the price tag could be somewhere in the ballpark of $25 million. FEMA will pick up about $19 million of that.

The county is on the hook for the remaining six million.
