U.S. Plains wildfires ravage ranches in three states

U.S. Plains wildfires ravage ranches in three statesWhen the Schwerzenbach family saw a wildfire racing toward their remote ranch in Lipscomb, Texas, there was no time to run. “We had a minute or two and then it was over us,” said 56-year-old Nancy Schwerzenbach. The fire, moving up to 70 miles per hour (112 kph), was one of several across more than 2 million acres (810,000 hectares) that hit the Texas Panhandle, Oklahoma and Kansas last week, causing millions of dollars of damage and killing thousands of livestock.
