MWAN spoke to fire officials this morning and below is a recording of an interview with Texas Forestry Service Public Information Officer Stuart Morris.

There are no official evacuation orders at the moment but he is recommending that people in and around the fire have a plan of action just in case as the winds are expected to shift this afternoon.

So far close to 12,000 acres have burned and is at 18% containment according to TFS.
