This article presents information about the aftermaths of the largest wildfire in Texas, which triggered in March 2006. The firestorm caused 12 human deaths, and more than 700,000 acres of pasture, dozens of homes, barns, other structures and vehicles were destroyed. More than 3,000 cattle died due to flames and oxygen-robbing smoke. The fire also claimed thousands of miles of fence. Many agriculture and humanitarian groups in the area have established relief efforts. However, the burned land will need plenty of time to recover.
