One thing about the Texas Panhandle is that we all come together to care for our neighbors.  Borger, Fritch, Pampa, Canadian, and everywhere in between have seen horrific wildfires and many have lost homes, land, cattle, and so much more.   The Smokehouse Creek Fire is the largest wildfire Texas has seen and as of now it is still burning.
