Texas Sees More Than 1,100 Wildfires in 2022 – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

As of Friday, the Texas A&M Forest Service reported that 195 of Texas 254 counties had burned down, the highest level since 2011.

One of them, David Carter, was a hardcover fire in Bosc County, which took time to make farmers feel comfortable with his glasses.

“These firefighters threw everything they had before the fire broke out,” says Carter.

The photos show workers in the air and on the ground working to save structures and prevent Walnut Springs from leaving, and residents have been told to be prepared.

As of Friday night, 45 percent of the fire had been contained and 600 hectares of land had been burned.

“I have no doubt in my mind that if they had not jumped in front of the fire in the way they did in the city of Walter Springs, by looking at those sailors and the dangers they posed to protect others. It is worse than it is today. ”

HardCasal Fire is one of more than 1,100 Texas A and M Forest services that have responded so far this year.

“This will definitely be a historic year,” said spokesman Adam Turner.

According to Turner, by 2022, more than 3,000 fires are burning, and nearly 3 million hectares are being built to resemble 2011. But this time, he said, they have a lot of resources, not just in Texas but across the country.

“Texas was the focus of this year’s wildfires. It will continue. We are in the midst of a major fire in Texas, so we will have resources to respond. It will continue until the rains come, ”he said.

In the meantime, Turner said, fire bans will continue to be significant, and much of the country is now dry.

“We often make jokes without even thinking about it. I mean, it’s not really funny. It’s scary, and it’s so dry, ”said Turner.

On Friday, the Bosc County Emergency Management Office shared a question.

“A humble request from a very tired firefighter, please beware of anything that could explode! The last thing we want now is another big fire and conditions are considered extreme today. “

“Most of our recent fires are ‘road start’. This means the fire is like dragging chains on the road and pulling out discarded cigarettes. Of course, these are not the only ones but they are very annoying. Because they can be prevented!”

According to the Forest Service, 90% of wildfires are caused by humans.
