Nine forest fires have burned more than 400,000 acres across Idaho. The state is experiencing more wildfire activity right now than any other part of the country.
In the central part of the state, firefighters are battling against a wildfire that's burned nearly 160 square miles since a lightning strike started it on August 7th. The fire has forced evacuations for at least 2,000 homes in areas around the Sun Valley Resort.
