It's day 241 of fire season, and Texas is on pace for a possible record-setting year, according to the Texas A&M Forest Service, though it's not the type of record they want to see. Texas firefighters are dealing with some of the worst wildfire conditions we've seen in years. "So this is definitely the worst fire season that I've experienced while working for the Texas A&M Forest Service," said Adam Turner. Turner said, in terms of fire season duration, they have to look back a decade and beyond.
