While many North Texans were enjoying the cold front that brought relief from the brutal 100 degree days, that same cold front was wrecking havoc in central Texas. The wind brought in by the front is making the wildfires in central Texas more difficult for the firemen to fight the 25,000 acre fire threatening hundreds of homes in the areas near Austin.
Many neighborhoods have been requested to evacuate their homes. To pack up what is most essential and leave behind the rest. In the face of such dire circumstances, the best of people often rises to the top. Strangers helping strangers out of the goodness of their own hearts. One such neighbor helping out their fellow man is Dallas Stars' own Brad Lukowich.
On Sunday, a series of tweets from Lukowich (@Luko37) offered up a ray of hope and a helping hand for those suffering from the wildfire destruction in the Austin area:
If anyone needs a place to go from Steiner Ranch you can come here... We have water available too... Message me if u need us
Bastrop, Steiner Ranch, Cedar Park, Got a bunch of used girls clothing, 4t and smaller, let me know if you need, I can bring to you
The Lukowich family then got word that their neighborhood may be the next target of the wildfires.
We have our stuff packed and are awaiting further instruction... Thanks for all the concern, ash is falling, so it's close #centraltxfires
thanks were in a holding pattern right now and I'm pretty optimistic because of our fireman, you should hear'em kickin ass
So, after getting his family squared away, the Lukowich family again turned to helping others out.
