Crews Fighting to Save West Texas Town

2:08pm

ROBERT LEE, Texas (AP) — Firefighting reinforcements are rallying to the struggle to keep a massive wildfire from sweeping into a small West Texas courthouse town.

Coke County Emergency Coordinator Lorrie Martin says the so-called Wildcat Fire is about 5 miles south of Robert Lee, the county seat, and winds are steady from the south at 20-25 mph with gusts to 30 mph.

Texas Forest Services spokesman Oscar Nestas says subdivisions near Lake Spence, just west of Robert Lee, have been evacuated. Residents of a Robert Lee nursing home also have been moved from the area.
