to save it and if it gets too rough or everything gets too close, then i got me a dog up there in the backside, me and her are gonna start walking down this road." officials told me earlier today that as far as they know no civilians have been injured due to the flames and that's because most people have been following evacuation orders the only two injuries were suffered by firefighters are minor injuries and the two are right back at work fighting this

" many of the people staying at shelters-- left their homes just to get away from the heavy smoke. the fires are also affecting truckers who have to find alternate routes so they can make deliveries. "fuel prices haven't been too affected that i've seen. the other aspect of it is
lot of loads because you can't get there if you have to go through the fire areas. i've been stuck here in las vegas for three days." the fire is taking a toll on business... trucker august walkman tells us there have been a lot of cancellations because of all of the delays. also... he has to pay for his own gas and hotel room while he's stranded. he says he's spent almost three thousand dollars because of the fire. toss to weather more heat for us on thursday with a high of 104 and afternoon gusts to 25 mph from the southwest. there's a good chance more wildfire smoke will move into the las vegas area over the next few days. we'll have 103 on friday with 102 expected
