Montana's Wildfire Damage

From Missoula, Montana, Kathy Witkowsy reports on the widespread damage that drought and wildfires are causing in the western part of the state. Hundreds of thousands of acres of forest have burned already, and millions of acres more have been closed because of fire danger. Businesses that rely on tourism are losing money, and ranchers are facing losses too. More than 200 buildings have been destroyed by fire.
