Wildfires continue spreading through northwest
Fire crews are facing more challenges today as wildfires in the northwest continue to rage. Idaho's Beaver Creek fire has grown to 144 square miles. Flames are moving closer to homes and entire subdivisions -- including the celebrity getaway of Sun Valley. Mandatory evacuations have been issued for 1,600 houses in the smoke- filled valley. In northern Utah, flames jumped a state highway and fire lines -- burning through the community of willow springs. Evacuees are on edge -- worrying about the homes they left behind in a hurry.
"When you get a chance to sit back and think about it you remember all the things you didn't get out that you should have gotten out, it's too late."
The Patch Spring fire has scorched more than 50-square miles and is only about 20 percent contained. And tonight, a new fire is threatening over 400 homes in Northern California, near Bangor. Evacuation orders have been issued. One home has already been destroyed.
