Airlifted to safety

A group of Scouts had to be rescued by helicopter as wildfires swept through a campground and burned thousands of acres in Utah, according to CNN.

Eighteen Scouts and hikers were airlifted out of the rough, rocky terrain of Salt Creek Canyon, about 85 miles south of Salt Lake City. Luckily, nobody was injured.

There are 72 large fires burning nationwide.
