Fire outside Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NV - JULY 08: Smoke from the Carpenter 1 fire in the Spring Mountains range is illuminated by the setting sun as it billows behind the Stratosphere Casino Hotel (R) on July 8, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. More than 15,000 acres have burned since lightning sparked the blaze in Carpenter Canyon on the Pahrump, Nevada side of Mount Charleston on July 1. More than 750 firefighters are battling the wildfire which crested the peak of Mount Charleston on Thursday, prompting the evacuation of 520 people as it began descending the east side of the mountain, about 35 miles northwest of Las Vegas. The fire is 15% contained and fire officials estimate that they won't have it fully contained until July 19. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)
