Wildfires Rage Through Eleven States

Posted: Updated:

Wildfires are raging today in eleven western states. Strong winds are fanning an Oregon wildfire that forced dozens to evacuate but conditions are improving near Sun Valley, Idaho as hundreds of families are being allowed to return home.

On the steep pine covered mountain sides much of the firefighting has been done from the air, dropping water and fire retardant to ease the job of crews on the ground.
