Dozens of wildfires are raging in the western part of the United States.

In central Idaho, the Beaver Creek wildfire has burned more than 160 square miles. More than 1,200 people are battling the blaze, along with the National Guard, 19 aircraft, and 90 fire engines.

Approximately 2,300 homes were evacuated and thousands of others are on standby.

"You never stop thinking about, 'Am I going to lose my house?'" one resident said.

"It is coming down the mountain side right there, so now it is just wait and see what happens. You can't control it," another resident said.

Other fires are burning near the city Dallas, in Oregon, and in Northern California.
