Possum Kingdom on Fire: The Official Video

Possum Kingdom, the beloved state park west of Fort Worth -- celebrated in song by The Toadies -- has been very unlucky when it comes to the wildfires hitting west and north Texas.

The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department has released some official video of the event, including interviews with firefighters. Coupled with the pictures of West Texas's blazes, it leaves one big thought: Let's hope for some rain soon.
