A wildfire has destroyed over 700 kilometres of land in northern Texas. Winds and dry conditions have been fueling the fire in the past week.

Cooler temperatures overnight have given firefighters the opportunity to dig trenches and burn brush. This has helped control the fire.

The fire has now started to blow north and east in uninhabited territory.

The blaze has not destroyed any homes yet.
