Texas wildfires torch 1,000 homes
Dozens of wildfires raging in rain-starved Texas are now reported to have engulfed more than 1,000 homes.
The biggest of the blazes - 26km wide - in rural Bastrop County, is burning out of control for a third day, having destroyed 600 homes.
Two people were reported to have died in the Bastrop blaze, a local sheriff said, amid hopes for calmer winds to help control the fires.
Texas has been suffering its worst drought since the 1950s.
