Firefighters have stopped a wildfire from spreading in the western North Dakota tourist town of Medora.
A U.S. Border Patrol agent is credited with saving a man who was trapped in a brush fire along the North Dakota border with Canada.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom said the state will hire nearly 1,400 additional firefighters as an unusually dry winter stokes fears of another devastating wildfire season.
The move would require reclassifying more seasonal federal firefighter positions as permanent.
