The Texas A&M Forest Service said embers from burning tree crowns were flying downwind up to 200 yards.

The Chalk Mountain Fire near Glen Rose burned almost 10 square miles of mostly short grass, brush and juniper Wednesday.

Temperatures approaching 110 degrees, combined with near 20% humidity and 10-mph winds gusting to 20 mph, resisted efforts to contain the fiery spread beyond 10% containment.

A Possum Kingdom Lake fire destroyed five homes.
