APTOPIX Nevada Wildfires
The Carpenter 1 fire burns in the mountains behind the Red Rock Conservation Area visitor center near Las Vegas early in the morning of Thursday, July 11, 2013. The fire has forced the closure of the Red Rock National Conservation Area Scenic Loop. Firefighters in the mountains near Las Vegas hoped Thursday that predicted rain showers and cooler temperatures would help them corral the massive wildfire that for 10 days charred almost 44 square miles and was still just 15 percent contained.
