Crews are battling wildfires in Florida and Texas.

Two people were injured in Roberts County, Texas, where 40,000 acres have burned so far. The blaze is only 10 percent contained and three homes have been evacuated.

In Florida, 150 people returned to their homes following evacuations due to a fire caused by a man burning paperback books in the forest.

The fire stretched to 400 acres, but is no longer spreading.
