Texas Wildfires are convincing the general public that the panhandle area of the state is unfit to live in, which is why demands to evacuate have been made. Dozens of counties are looking to remove their citizens from absolutely dangerous surroundings of the wildfire air as is resulting from the Smokehouse Creek fire.

This fire is the second-largest wildfire in Texas history.

Meanwhile the Governor Greg Abbott himself has declared a disaster for 60 counties this past Tuesday, all while the declaration will be giving the fire response teams the space they need to handle the wildfires of the Texas Panhandles, easily.

It is a danger of course, given that the Pantex Nuclear Weapons Plant has had to pause their own operations up until later notice. All while the nonessential personnel for the precaution of the wildfires, given that there’s an internal situation report from the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency.

Such a facility had been located right around thirteen miles away from the Windy Deuce Fire in Moore County, being that it’s one of the many fires that was monitored by the Texas A&N Forest Service.

Fires that would show up had impacted the central and eastern portions of the Texas Panhandle all according to the National Weather Service.

What’s more is that the Smokehouse Creek Fire had by now burned down about 500,000 acres and is currently only 0% contained as recently as Wednesday morning. Of course, this is known as “extreme fire behavior” given that the wildfire would be pushed up to 60 miles per hour and flames as tall as nearly 20 feet, all while the fire would cross into Northwest Oklahoma, which in turn affects many highways and even promotes the evac of a nursing home.

Several towns are at jeopardy with evacuations in effect for several towns and communities in Amarillo. Many school districts had been closed on Wednesday due to the wildfires. So the hopes are that the responders can work well and quick on quelling the fires from spreading too much.
