Wildfire season officially over but threat still high

Texas wildfire season has officially come to a close. November 15, 2011 marked the one-year anniversary of the devastating Texas wildfires that were started in 2010. This past season saw over 29,000 fires across the state which ultimately damaged more than 2,900 homes.

Although the wildfire season may be over, the threat for more wildfires to occur is extremely high. The next wildfire season is not expected to be as damaging, but with the drought still looming over the state the effects can still be devastating.

There are multiple dead trees that could be used as an easy fire starter for another wildfire. The warm, dry winter weather could create instances where wildfires can start and thrive.
