3 wildfires burn in Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge

CHAMBERS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- If you saw a large cloud looming over Chambers County on Thursday, here's why.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service workers responded to three wildfires at the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. It's unclear how the fires started.

Officials said two were small fires that were up against creeks which were expected to burn out on their own. A fire line was created around the third fire to help control it.

As of Thursday afternoon, there were no structures at risk. Officials said staff was hopeful they would be able to get in front of the fires before Thursday evening.
