Palo Pinto County wildfire now fully contained

Firefighters have completely contained a wildfire that’s been burning for days near Possum Kingdom Lake, west of Fort Worth.

The Texas A&M Forest Service said it no longer needs the many resources sent by the state government to fight the so-called Storage Fire.

Firefighters from Palo Pinto County are mopping up the rest of the fire.
