A Central Texas wildfire has burned more than 6 square miles and destroyed at least nine homes as voluntary evacuations continue near Smithville, with no reports of anyone hurt. The Texas A&M Forest Service said the blaze in Bastrop County quadrupled in size after an aerial survey was conducted. The fire was 15 percent contained Thursday morning, the Forest Service reported. The Forest Service had estimated 50 percent containment earlier Wednesday, but challenging topography and uncontrolled fire lines slashed the containment.
