Budget Battle Wildfires
FILE - In this Dec. 9, 2017 file photo, a fire engine passes flames as a wildfire burns along Santa Ana Road near Ventura, Calif. A spending bill slated for a vote in Congress includes a bipartisan plan to create a wildfire disaster fund to help combat increasingly severe wildfires that have devastated the West in recent years. The bill sets aside more than $20 billion over 10 years to allow the Forest Service and other federal agencies end a practice of raiding non-fire-related accounts to pay for wildfire costs that approached $3 billion last year.(AP Photo/Noah Berge, Filer)

fire aftermath
A tire fire continues to burn on private property days after the end of the Carson Midway fire. Crews in protective masks and gear from the El Paso County Public Works and the EPA work to remove the smoldering tires on Wednesday, March 21, 2018. The tires were being used as a wall or boundary on the private property. The tires are in the process of being smothered and moved to a tire disposal area that just happens to be near the fire. Yesterday, the EPA decided to move the tires so that they will cause the least environmental damage. An elementary school in the area of the tire fire was closed until Wednesday, when conditions were determined to be safe. (Photo by Jerilee Bennett, The Gazette)
