Wildfires continued raging through Texas and Oklahoma Monday, threatening homes and buildings. Thousands of acres of dry land were charred in the fire which started last Tuesday.

Sixty separate wildfires, whipped by strong winds, were burning across Texas on Monday, destroying hundreds of homes and killing at least two people, officials said.

An estimated 1,000 homes were being threatened in Bastrop County, just east of Austin, as a 14,000-acre (5,700-hectare) wildfire rages out of control, causing evacuations, Reuters reported.
