Texas: a fire that's just too big and not even the firefighters manage to intervene. Images here

A fire literally devoured one of the railway bridges connecting San Saba to Lometa, near the Colorado River, in Texas. The firefighters spent 15 hours in vain, trying desperately to put out the flames. In the end, given the extent of the fire, the firefighters decided it was better to leave the flames to burn the bridge. The section of railway affected is often used for cargo transport; huge damage amounting to about 10 million dollars.
