Transcript for 20 Wildfires Spread Across 7 Western States
wildfires burning out of control in the west, 20 in all. Seven states, the two biggest are in California's napa valley and Montana's glacier national park. Hundreds of firefighters battling those flames which have forced people from their homes. ABC's kayna Whitworth is in Montana this morning with the very latest. Good morning, kayna. Reporter: Amy, good morning. The Reynolds creek fire here in Montana is so dangerous and so complex they've had to bring in a new incident command team overnight and they don't have reported containment and expecting another day of high wind, of course, weather is a factor in all of the fires across the west. This morning, unpredictable wildfires ravaging the west. The flames in California's rag fire zone reaching the 7,000-acre range this morning with just 15% containment. More than 500 firefighters wrestling extremely steep terrain and raging winds. Three tankers and ten helicopters also launching an aggressive aerial assault. 45 minutes east of California's famed napa valley, residents stunned by flames shooting up as high as 100 feet in the air. It's growing big real fast and it's getting close. Reporter: Hundreds of people forced out of their homes. We need to completely mitigate any hazards before we can let them in. Reporter: Amid the chaos multiple evacuations and roadblocks in place as 20 wildfires burn across seven states. 16-year-old lacoda Duncan and his family making a swift escape. As this wall of fire bulldozed the popular glacier national park. It was very humbling how mother nature can do that. It was very, very scary too. With that kind of wind in this fire it grew very rapidly. Reporter: Dry, windy conditions putting a strain on firefighters and resources. With no end in sight. Glacier national park is known for grizzly bears and police are saying they're being pushed out of the wilderness. For firefighters that means they can't keep anything with a scent inside their tent so, Amy, that means things like chapstick, lotion, even deodorant. Oh, all right. Tough conditions out there. Kayna Whitworth, thanks so much
