A fast-moving wildfire in northern Texas has forced evacuations and destroyed 25 homes, fire officials said Tuesday. The roughly 7,500-acre blaze was located about 50 miles west of Dallas-Fort Worth. Some 125 homes were evacuated, said Tom Berglund, spokesman for the Texas Forest Service. "Obviously we don’t have any containment on it. It’s growing too fast," he said. Berglund said air tankers were expected to assist firefighting efforts on Wednesday.
