The fires in Bastrop County and Steiner Ranch that occurred on Labor Day weekend destroyed thousands of home and acres of land. Officials have said that the wildfires burned so strongly because of the weather conditions in Central Texas at that time.
Central Texas was in a drought since April when the fires began, making the ground very dry. Another factor was the location where the fires occurred. In a wildlife-urban area where developments meet natural land, fires can be more prominent.
Neighborhoods that are surrounded by this type of land are now brainstorming of ways to prevent these wildfires from occurring again. For example, the city council discusses creating man-made gaps in the greenbelt areas so that it would slow the spread of the wildfire.
