Wildfires burn through Colorado and the West

Record temperatures and dry conditions are creating a dangerous mix for wildfires in the Rocky Mountain region. Colorado, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming are under red-flag warnings and the weather forecast isn't letting up. The largest of the fires is burning in Colorado which saw a record 105 degree temperature yesterday. That has residents — and tourism officials — worried. Long after the fires are contained, the damage to homes and the state's economy could be long lasting.
