wildfires not close to being under control

After firefighters from Montgomery County made the trip this morning from Merkel to Midland they were told to get some rest. Originally it was thought they would be going to the Frying Pan Ranch fire on the Texas, New Mexico border.

Now it appears that first thing in the morning they will go to San Angelo where firefighters with little help are growing tired quickly.

Leaving ahead of the crew we were able to get some photos and video of how dangerous and large this fire is.

Most of these were taken near the town of Robert Lee which is about 30 miles from San Angelo.The town along with the town of Edith is being threatened.

Video will be posted tomorrow.
