Firefighters attempt to merge wildfires to contain Caldor Fire

Firefighters are attempting to steer the aggressive Caldor Fire in Northern California toward the neighboring Tamarack Fire, a "fresh burn area" that could provide an important and natural stopping point for the fast-moving inferno. The Caldor Fire has already scorched more than 191,000 acres as of Tuesday and is only 16% contained. The Tamarack Fire spans nearly 70,000 acres across Alpine County in California and Douglas County in Nevada. It was 82% contained as of Tuesday.
