Devastating Boles Blaze Leaves Weed Residents Without Homes

California ReportLiam Moriarty

 

Many residents of the small town of Weed near Mt. Shasta are now homeless. Fire officials say more than 150 buildings were damaged or destroyed in a wildfire that swept through the town Monday. Weed is home to fewer than 3,000 people, and the fire burned less than 400 acres. But the speed of it, driven by 40-mile-per-hour winds, kept firefighters scrambling to get ahead.
