Wildfires were burning Monday in seven Western U.S. states, from California’s famed Big Sur region. Evacuations were ordered in Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Wyoming and firefighters were trying to stop a Washington blaze from reaching a thickly forested security zone at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation.
