    Volunteer firefighter Jason Collard prepares to fight a running wildfire on April 19, 2011 in Strawn, Texas. Dozens of area homes have been destroyed in the wildfires that have been fueled by dry conditions, high winds, and low humidity.

    Firefighters battling wildfires in west Texas are also battling with supply shortages of some useful items.
