Idaho ranchers rescue cattle from wildfire on grazing lands

It is all hands on deck for a cattle rescue in Idaho.

Ranchers in the area are moving livestock as a wildfire consumes their grazing land. Lightning started the Four Corners Fire almost two weeks ago, and it was only 11 percent contained this week.

Ranchers say that moving cattle is a challenge because they are surrounded by fire on all sides and some have already had to be put down. The south side of the fire is the most dangerous now, with the lowest containment levels and winds pushing against it.
