I live in Tyrone and saw the fire close up as i drove into town early this afternoon, just awful. I hope they find the person(s) responsible for this. My prayers also go out to the brave policemen&women and firefighters fighting this horrific fire.

Sorry for your losses and putting peoples lives on the line because some idiot decided to start an outside fire. This is criminal and I hope whoever started the fire is arrested and sent to prison for at least 25 years just for the property damage. If this really gets out of control with the winds today everything north and east is going to burn.

"I bet I know El Paso, TX" your comment is unworthy of this site and your ability to post should be suspended for life. You are a bigot and hate monger.

More like cig butt thrown out, than trailers, candles or homosexuality.

Really, is it too much to ask people to stick to the facts and live in reality?

I guess so.
