The blaze has now torched 120,000 acres and claimed 40 to 50 homes in Jeff Davis County. The fire is 60 percent contained.
"For us, contained is when we get a line all the way around it, whether it's a black line that's extinguished or a dozer line," said technical specialist Dwight Dold. "And we won't call it controlled. To us, controlled means the fire is out."
The Texas Forest service has sent several 20-person hand crews, bulldozers, engines and air tankers fighting the blaze. Multiple fire crews are also fighting the flames.
TX 17 is closed south of Balmorhea because of the fires.

"Everything in my house is fine," said Fort Davis resident Cliff Calvert. "Everything around me is gone, basically."
The main priority for fire crews Tuesday night was Casket Mountain. There is some fire on that mountain, which is north of town. As of Tuesday night, no evacuations had been ordered.
