Smokehouse Creek Fire is Officially the Largest in Texas History

The devastating Smokehouse Creek Fire in Hutchinson County is officially the largest fire in Texas history, now covering an estimated 1,075,000 acres, according to the Texas A&M Forest Service.

As of Thursday morning, the fire was only 3% contained. The Smokehouse Creek Fire eclipsed the East Amarillo Complex Fire in 2006, which was measured at 907,245 acres, and previously held the title of largest fire in Texas history.

Fire crews are working hard to combat the enormous wildfire at Smokehouse Creek, before heightened winds Friday and into the weekend threaten to make the job more difficult.
