Officials in Texas say power lines ignited massive wildfires across the state’s Panhandle region that destroyed homes and killed thousands of livestock last week.
The largest blaze was spurred by fierce winds and scorched more than 200,000 acres in one day. It was 0% contained by Tuesday evening.
All of the region except for the burned sections of historic Lahaina town will reopen Nov. 1.

The area around the historic Maui town largely destroyed by wildfire two months ago has begun welcoming back travelers.
Residents from fire-stricken Lahaina are petitioning Hawaii's governor to delay his plans to reopen a portion of West Maui to tourism starting this weekend.
Authorities will begin allowing the first residents to return to their properties in the burn zone, many for the first time since the historic town was demolished.
"These are positive signs for its long-term recovery," Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources said.
Determining the death toll from the Lahaina fires has been complicated because of the damage caused by the fire and the chaos as people tried to escape.
The deadliest U.S. wildfire in more than a century swept through Lahaina on Aug. 8.
