The fire had destroyed 34,000 acres and 550 homes in Bastrop County mid-afternoon Tuesday.
Emergency crews from Bastrop County battled fires overnight but have still not managed to bring them under control. Some pictures have been published by the Washington Post and they're impressive.
In last few days, the Texas Forest Service has responded to 181 fires in different places including Bastrop, Colorado, Henderson, Caldwell, Montgomery, Grimes, Travis and Limestone counties.
Bastrop County Animal Control set up an emergency shelter for rescued animals and for the pets of people evacuating.

The wildfires are even visible all the way from space. Some astronauts from the ISS published some of the pictures of the blaze in Bastrop County and they look incredible. I see if I can post some of the photos here.
I hope firefighters get the fire under control soon.
