Wildfires in Weatherford

01.30.08 | Comment?

High winds blew through the area yesterday, sparking a number of wildfires west of Fort Worth. One of them was in Benbrook, only about ten miles from my house. In fact, I can see Lake Benbrook from the end of the main street past my development.

About 20 houses have been reported destroyed so far, including the house of writer James Reasoner, which burned to the ground. He and his family are OK, but they only got out with the clothes on their backs. All his books, comics, everything was destroyed.

I guess I’ll quit complaining about the fence that blew down in my backyard.
