Hundreds of thousands of acres in West still burning as wildfires rage

 Monday, August 20, 2012


Wildfires continued to scorch large swaths of the western United States on Sunday, with firefighters doing their best to corral a host of blazes despite high temperatures, low humidity and possible lightning in many locales. Two of the biggest, still raging conflagrations are in Idaho’s expansive Salmon-Challis National Forest, one of several places -- along with most of the rest of the Gem State as well as parts of Oregon, Utah and Montana -- where the National Weather Service issued red flag warnings through at least Sunday night. The largest is the Halstead Fire, centered about 18 miles northwest of Stanley, according to InciWeb, a U.S. government-operated multiagency fire response website.
