Scary Wildfire Video of Bastrop State Park

All but about 100 acres of the 6,000-acre Bastrop State Park have been blackened by fire, the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department says, and they've posted this video to show why.

With surprising alacrity, a fire creeps across the land, with nothing to stop it and wind to push it along.

And that is why you evacuate when you get the word.
