Despite gusty winds, firefighters say they made progress in containing wildfires burning around Texas.

Fires broke out in north, central and western areas of the state.

The Texas Forest Service says firefighters battled ten fires yesterday -- but most were 80 to 90 percent contained.

About ten-thousand acres have been scorched since Thursday.
