When the Schwerzenbach family saw a wildfire racing toward their remote ranch in Lipscomb, Texas, there was no time to run.
For Troy Bryant, 34, a rancher in Laverne, Oklahoma, the impact from the fires has been devastating. He lost livestock worth about $35,000 and fencing worth about $40,000.
“We saw 4,000 acres burned here. Some places further west of here lost much more," he said.
