State fair's Big Tex burns up in fire - Photo Gallery 2/5

FILE - In this Oct. 6, 1997 file photo, Big Tex watches over the crowd at one end of the Texas State Fair midway in Dallas. Fire destroyed Big Tex on Friday, Oct. 19, leaving behind little more than the metal frame of the 52-foot-tall metal-and-fabric cowboy that is an icon of the State Fair of Texas.
