Dry, gusty conditions spell another long day for firefighters in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.
Two Texas towns have been virtually destroyed by fire. One blaze runs for 25 miles and covers 22,000 acres.
An Oklahoma City fire official says his department considers the entire city a target.
An Oklahoma City man says he and his wife drove through "patches of fire" as flames from a wildfire engulfed their home last night.
Howard Lusk told "The Early Show" on CBS that "red embers were coming down" and that he and his wife Debra "had to leave in a hurry."
Debra Lusk says she had pulled out a garden hose to water down the house but the fire came so fast, there was no time to do anything but flee.
