Prime conditions for wildfires prevailed again on Wednesday in the western United States. According to Reuters firefighters are battling to gain control over several large blazes that have forced the evacuation of more than 4,400 homes. The largest and most threatening blaze, the 416 Fire, has scorched nearly 26,000 acres. This drought-parched grass, brush and timber is at the edge of the San Juan National Forest near the southwestern Colorado town of Durango. Wind gusts up to 25 MPH, temperatures in the 80s and humidity of less than 15% are expected later on Wednesday. Fire crews by Wednesday morning had contained 15% of the fire. No people have been injured or structures lost in the Colorado fires. At least 7 major fires were raging in parts of Colorado. This marks the biggest concentration of roughly 30 blazes burning across nine Western states.
