A chronology of photos captures the fire's progress Friday as it jumped from Bosque to Somervell County. Firefighters and emergency crews worked around-the-clock to keep the fire under control through Saturday as "hot spots" ignited.

A smaller, separate fire broke out on FM 202, prompting the Texas Forest Service to call in a helicopter with a water bucket to douse the blaze.
