WORLD Watch: Top Story

Today in Top Story: New Mexico scrambles to contain the largest wildfire in the United States.

The fire has marched across 258 square miles of forest and grasslands at the southern tip of the Rocky Mountains. It’s destroyed dozens of homes. Thousands of families have evacuated. President Joe Biden on Wednesday approved a disaster declaration for parts of drought-parched New Mexico hit by wildfires. That will bring funds to help people in the areas devastated by fire since early April.

We get haze from their fires sometimes. It is very dry where I live as well. This is quite the fire. Hopefully it will burn itself out, or maybe they can get some rain!

Yeah, they can have some of ours. It's been raining everyday for about a week! (which we really needed!) I hope the fire doesn't do any permanent damage.
