Firefighters hope to have control of a big fire by Friday. It has already burned a lot of land. Firefighters do not want it to burn any more.

Firefighters worked very hard to control other fires in the area. They worked all night. Their hard work saved a lot of land.

Now firefighters are getting worried. The wind is starting to blow. They think that the winds could fan the flames again.

When wind fans a flame, it helps the fire grow. This would be very bad. The firefighters are hoping that the winds do not get any stronger.

The fire destroyed more than just land. Homes and other buildings were also burned. Fires can destroy things very fast.
