gloria rivera, abc news, washington. secretary of state rex tillerson is calling north korea's break through missile launch a new escalation of the threat to the u.s. and the rest of the world. in a defiant show of force, u.s. and south korean soldiers responded by firing deep-strike precision missiles into the south korean territorial waters. this comes as the u.s. military confirms that north korea did in fact launch an intercontinental ballistic missile that has the potential to reach alaska. and as abc's military analyst explains, it could possibly reach even further east. >> they didn't want to overfly japan or russia. the missile itself reached an apex of almost 1700 miles. which means it could have reached anchorage and wouldn't have been far from reaching seattle. the u.s. has been developing a ground-based interceptor system that's designed to knock down incoming north korean missiles, but it's very complex science. it's like hitting a bullet with
a bullet and although the most recent test was successful, the system itself is barely over 50% reliable. >> thank you very much steven. we turn now to the extreme heat wave in the western u.s. and its effect. >> there are at least 30 wildfires burning. with no significant rainfall expected until next week. nearly a quarter of a million acres have been consumed and new wildfires are likely to ignite thanks to high temperatures and low humidity. >> firefighters are in northern nevada. the earth stone fire has consumed 25,000 acres while the truckee fire is at 30,000 acres. there are more in arizona than any other state. some were started by lightning. a blaze at a popular resort was started by a fireworks show. the fire was brought quickly under control, and there were no injuries. the resort employee posts on facebook that the fireworks were great, then the desert started
burning. today's weather in the west won't be much help to firefighters either or much fun in the rest of the country. >> accuweather's paul williams is here with the forecast. good morning, paul. >> good morning, nick, diane. low humidity causing problems with fires that we already have, the heat will continue to strengthen. in the desert southwest we're looking for the heat to really continue in the form of 115 degrees toward phoenix and one teens in vegas and 100-plus in salt lake city. thunderstorms threaten missouri, illinois and wisconsin. we are going to see a front push through with strong storms breaking off and beginning to pound the pavement for us in madison, green bay, sioux falls, omaha, des moines, duluth and minneapolis. and blinding downpours and tornados. >> thanks, paul. and the vatican is acknowledging problems at its
