San Francisco water, power threatened by wildfire

A wildfire that has already charred 15,000 acres of land in California now threatens the water and power supplies for San Francisco.

The "Rim Fire" was within 2 miles of the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, which supplies most of San Francisco with its water.

California officials already declared a state of emergency last week over the threat the fire posed to San Francisco's power infrastructure.

Scott Cohn reports from the scene of the fire.
