A central Texas forest fire in Bastrop on Highway 21 crosses the freeway after winds from Tropical Storm Lee caused an extreme fire alert in Central Texas. The fire was shooting out from the trees however they can only be seen in a few parts of the video. The Bastrop police department shut down the freeway shortly after this video was taken.

This was when the wildfires first began, so it had not hit the news yet. The fires were concealed from our point of view up until my mom started filming, at which point we immediately started looking for the first available turnaround.

The Bastrop County Complex fire was the most destructive wildfire in Texas state history. The fire destroyed 96 percent of the 6,565 acre Bastrop State Park. The September 2011 Texas wildfires destroyed over 32,000 acres of land, resulting in the loss of over 1,600 homes, and the death of 2 people.
