Area volunteer firefighters are again battling the intense heat of fires combined with the outside temperature.
On Thursday, a fire started at Waggoner Ranch and has burned about 5,800 acres. At one point, the fire was 90 percent contained but jumped out of the line. As of 5:20 p.m. Friday the fire was 50 percent contained.
Multiple agencies are working the fire including Vernon, Wichita Falls, Munday, Crowell, Seymour and the Texas Forest Service.
