Rain on Monday is a welcome sight for fire crews who have been battling wildfires throughout Texas.

Firefighters have been battling some blazes throughout the state, including two large fires in West Texas.

Smaller fires also were reported in Palo Pinto, Throckmorton, Angelina, San Jacinto, Tyler and Fayette counties.
