A Bastrop fire caused several people to be evacuated. People in the areas of Wilderness Ridge, parts of Cedar Creek and Alum Creek are being asked to leave. The fire is near FM 1441 and Highway 21.

A new fire on Griffin League Ranch is moving south and will join with the wildfire. A mandatory evacuation has been issued for all circle D County -- all homes on Schwantz Ranch Road, Old Potato Road and all Highway 21 homes east to Paige.

14,000 acres burned in Bastrop. More than 300 homes lost, and there's still no containment.
