Episode Narrative A pair of wildfires developed and grew rapidly during the weekend of June 11th and 12th, charring more than 3,500 acres from near Encino to an area near the Encinitos/Burns Ranch area, along Farm to Market 755 near the Hidalgo County line. Extreme Drought conditions, temperatures near 100 degrees, afternoon humidity falling below 30 percent, and gusty winds to 20 to 25 mph likely contributed to the rapid spread of each fire.
