Southern California Wildfire
This July 17, 2013 image provided by Paul Newkirk shows wildfire smoke near Idyllwild, Calif. The blaze about 100 miles east of Los Angeles had grown to more than 35 square miles in size and had destroyed at least six houses and mobile homes. Tensions heightened late Wednesday after winds shifted, causing the fire to change course and head in the direction of Idyllwild, an artist community and hiking destination in the San Jacinto Mountains.(AP Photo/Paul Newkirk)
