Firefighters are battling numerous fast-spreading wildfires across the state of Texas, prompting Governor Greg Abbott to declare a disaster in 60 counties on Tuesday.

The declaration aims to ensure the swift deployment of critical fire response resources to areas in the Texas Panhandle affected by devastating wildfires.

The fires, particularly threatening in the northern part of the state, have necessitated evacuations in populated areas.

Governor Abbott urged Texans to minimize activities that could spark fires and to take necessary precautions to ensure their safety, as strong winds continue to fan the flames.

Abbott anticipates that weather conditions in the region are unlikely to improve in the coming days, potentially leading to larger and more dangerous wildfires.

According to media reports, the rapidly spreading fire has already consumed over 780 square kilometers of land within 24 hours.
