Wind fans the flames of Utah fire that has burned 13 homes

Winds will be a major concern for firefighters Tuesday as they continue to battle the fast-moving Manzanita Fire which consumed 5,000 acres in less than nine hours Monday and was only 10 percent contained. "It's just plain stupidity".

The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance said the statements were misleading, and countered in a prepared statment that climate change, drought, human activity and wind all play roles.

On California's Central Coast, evacuation orders remain in place for sparsely populated rural areas of San Luis Obispo County east of the town of Santa Margarita due to a almost 2-square-mile (5 sq. kilometer) fire.

More than 900 personnel are battling the fire, which started June 7.

So far, the cost to fight the blaze has exceeded $7m. The truth is that climate change, drought, historic fire suppression and wind all play roles in the severity of fires.

U.S. Forest Service officials and Utah state officials didn't immediately have information about logging requests in the area.

Bloch said his group hasn't challenged logging in the area of the Utah fire in two decades.

Will government of India go after Pakistan's proxies?
When Modi arrived at the White House, he was greeted not just by Trump but also Melania, as is the usual United States tradition. The State Department's action sent out a strong message against the terrorism emanating from Pakistan which is hurting India .

Michael Noel on Monday said environmentalists would rather see the Dixie National Forest burn down than to see logging occur in the state. "This is a direct outgrowth of the rhetoric of fear and hate coming out of the Trump administration".

Evacuation orders have been lifted and residents are returning after a wildfire on California's Central Coast.

Approximately 1,500 people - including seven residents asked to leave the Bear Valley area overnight as a precaution - remained evacuated as of Tuesday morning.

The blaze erupted and quickly surged in hot, dry, windy weather. Cities of Corona, Riverside, Palm Springs, and Hemet Fire Departments; City of Murrieta and Idyllwild Fire Protection Districts, March Reserve Fire Department, San Bernardino County Fire Department and the Riverside County Emergency Management Department were helping the fire department, according to Valley News. The flames are moving northeast, away from a subdivision, but they're still too close for comfort.

A brush fire in Southern California climbed the hillside near a Los Angeles freeway and forced road closures and evacuations on Sunday (June 26).

The estimated firefighting costs now top 7 million United States dollars (£5.5 million) for a fire which started on June 17 near the Brian Head Resort by someone using a torch tool to burn weeds, they said.
