The issue being overlooked is the presence of radiation in the burned areas. Radioactive particles cling to the ash being generated by the fires and
swept across the state, bringing the radiation from the atmosphere down to the ground. This radiation contaminates the soil and the things that the
soil produces. The radioactive particles in the soil send out invisible Gamma Radioactive rays, like an invisible fire.
Each and every one of those tiny particles is radioactive, but in a slightly different way. You can think of the lighter elements, like Iodine, as
if they are the mellow yellow coals, barely hot and turning to ash quickly. The heavier elements, like Plutonium, are immensely hot and throwing
sparks, they are the white hot burning coals. The more radioactive ash that is spread emits stronger and more concentrated Gamma rays.

Ash spreads to neighboring states

"We're actually seeing Texas burn from border to border. We've got it in west Texas, in east Texas, in north Texas, in south Texas -- it's all
over the state," Forest Service spokeswoman April Saginor told CNN Radio. "We've got one in the Dallas area that's four fires that have actually
As the ash spreads towards the borders of Texas, surrounding areas must brace for the impact. Local recordings must be taken and reported to ensure
the safety of the population.
