Weather offers no respite to weary firefighters

Hundreds of firefighters are looking to the sky for help in fighting wildfires in West Texas.

But forecasters are offering only a slight hope of rain later in the week.

That's left firefighters around Possum Kingdom Reservoir, Coke County and the Trans-Pecos of West Texas to fight the flames the hard way.

Hundreds of homes and weekend retreats around Possum Kingdom, a North Texas lake on the Brazos River, remain in harm's way as several massive wildfires move closer toward consolidation.

Meanwhile, fire crews work to keep the Coke County fire north of San Angelo and other fires in the rugged Trans-Pecos away from populated areas.
