On the morning of October 19, 2012 (the final weekend of the 2012 State Fair of Texas, and on Big Tex's 60th birthday) a fire started inside the framework of Big Tex. The figure's clothing, face and hat were completely destroyed in minutes as onlookers watched. While an official investigation has not yet taken place, state fair officials believe that the fire was due to an electrical short.
News of the fire received national attention, and fair officials have committed to rebuilding Big Tex "bigger and better" in time for the 2013 fair.
