image for Huge Wildfires Burn Through Texas

In the US state of Texas, wildfires have been burning for over 2 weeks. Officials stated that the fires were burning "from border to border", with some covering more than 100 000 acres.

There have been mandatory evacuation of large parts of the state. But some refuse to leave their homes. One man says "I've lived in this house for 30 years and nothins' ever got me to leave, so why should I go now?"

Most are just stubborn like this man, but some families have reasons to stay.

The Walkers are a family of four; they are all morbidly obese. This family has built a aluminum foil tent, and set it up near a fire. They carry fire extinguishers, and always keep watch. Why would this family have an aluminum tent? They claim "to lose weight".

This family believes that you can "sweat off your fat in a sauna". So they built a makeshift sauna, "We're going to lose weight fast, without any exercise and we'll start lowering our medical bill".

Many flee from fire, but the Walkers find a use for it.
