Day Fire Defies Firefighters

Hosted by

More than 4000 firefighters are eating and sleeping in tent cities as they try to control one of the biggest and longest-burning brush fires in California history. The Day Fire, in Ventura County's Los Padres National Forest, has been burning since Labor Day. More than 159,000 acres have been charred and 18 structures destroyed. There've been no deaths or injuries, but the cost of fighting the fire is $53 million and it's still only 43% contained.
