I chat with a girl from just outside of Pampa and I am very worried about her and her family, does any one have any updated information regarding the fire and specifically any damage reports to homes in the area between Leflor and Pampa?

I will tell you what I know. I have family in both Pampa and Borger. My Brother in Pampa tells me the fires have died down around Pampa this morning. He does not yet know much about specific damages or areas. I do know from the texas dot expressway web site last night, there has been alot of damage from Pampa to Lefors. Highways from McLean to Lefors were closed this morning due to power lines and poles being down. Fires still burn this morning in the Miami Tx area. BORGER Tx. is an area I cannot get my family to reply from either. I do not believe the fires got into town. But I do know about a dozen or so Structures were destroyed outside of town. I amm still trying to get in touch with there.

I live in borger and the fire did not come into the city limits, however it did burn several houses. As of noon you could still see smoke off to the east but dont really know how far off it was.

News from our family and friends in the Mobeetie area tells us that the fires remained several miles to the south of Mobeetie and are apparently contained this afternoon.(Tuesday)Some houses and outbuilings were destroyed to the south and southwest of town.
