Transcript for Western states hit by nearly 2 dozen wildfires
that starts at 8:00 eastern. The wildfire danger out west. Nearly two dozen uncontained fires are burning across several states. It's fueled by dry and windy conditions forcing some to evacuate. Ginger is back and she's here with the latest. Good morning, ginger. Look at these pictures out of meadow, Utah, the meadow creek fire burning more than 4,000 acres, got it 0% contained but happening, brush fires in Santa Barbara, California, so there were four different fires that merged together and had to shut down the 101. This morning they have thankfully been lifted but the wind advisories up. We could see sundowner winds later and gusts on the order of 30 to 50 miles per hour especially in those areas. This is not great. If a fire breaks out it will get out of control.
