As triple-digit heat continues to scorch Texas, parts of Central Texas are under excessive heat warnings and critical fire conditions.

Last week, the Powder Keg Fire near Bastrop State Park burned nearly 117 acres while the Mesquite Field Fire in southern Bastrop County burned 38 acres.

Over the weekend, the Oak Grove Fire in Hays County grew to 400 acres, evacuating several homes and destroying the home of 75-year-old Army veteran Michael Hinz. As of Tuesday morning, the wildfire was 90% contained, according to Texas A&M Forest Service.

Most recently, a fire in Cedar Park destroyed an apartment building Tuesday, displacing hundreds of residents and injuring one, according to city officials.
