Smoke Billows From Wildfire Burning in Texas's Bastrop State Park

The Rolling Pines Fire burning in Texas’ Bastrop State Park prompted nearby evacuations as it reached 500 acres and 10 percent containment on Tuesday, January 18.

Around 100 homes were threatened with no damages reported as of Tuesday evening, according to local media.

A controlled burn may have escaped its boundaries and caused the “very active” wildfire, KXAN reported.
