POSSUM KINGDOM LAKE, Texas-- A wildfire burning 90 miles west of Dallas is now 50 percent contained, firefighters said Thursday.

Crews continued to fight the wildfire and flare ups that has destroyed dozens of homes at a lakeside vacation community.

The fire has thus far consumed an estimated 6,200 acres.

It's also the second wildfire to burn in the area within the past four months.
