The Texas Panhandle is burning and the videos on social media are heartbreaking.

Thousands of people are without power or have been evacuated after a wildfire has scorched over 300,000 acres of land in Texas.

With high winds in the area, the fires cannot be contained and sadly so many homes and businesses are now in the path of this inferno.
