Hot Weather Brings Holiday Wildfires for Calif, N.M.

Ad Feedback

Much of the country has dealt with extreme weather conditions for the long holiday weekend.

Temperatures were so unseasonably hot in Madison, Wis., that a local marathon was called off Sunday, then turned into a half-marathon instead.

The heat, combined with drought conditions, is also fueling wildfires in the west.

A fire in the Gila National Forest in New Mexico has burned more than 122,000 acres. Saturday, residents in Mogollon were forced to evacuate as winds fueling the flames grew stronger.

"We are just hoping and praying that mother nature will give us a break," local business owner Mary Ann Connelly said.

Firefighters in Colorado and California are also battling blazes.
