Lightning Fire in Texas Panhandle

Posted by on in Lightning


Lightning is a major factor in wildland fires, and the average number of acres burned per fire is much higher in lightning fires than in fires that are caused by humans according to statistics from the National Fire Protection Association.  This fire was started by lightning strikes north of Allison, Texas on May 25, 2018. It quickly grew from a small flame to engulfing a small forested area.
