By  | 

The fire danger continues across much of Texas. That's evidenced by a fire out in Walker County Wednesday night.

The Texas Forest Service says a 25 acre blaze was contained as of 6 p.m., but not before destroying three abandoned houses.

Eight homes and six barns were threatened in the fire, which was between Huntsville and Riverside off Highway 19.

Bulldozers and a helicopter were called in by the Forest Service to help put the fire out.
