What would you do if a wildfire was getting dangerously close to your home? In California, two brothers decided to fight fire with fire. They set a controlled burn known as a "backfire" to save their 55-acre compound in Big Sur. It worked. But it didn't go over well with the authorities (AKA: the California Dept. of Forestry and Fire protection & sheriff's deputies). One brother was arrested. The other figures he's a wanted man. He's hoping he doesn't run into the authorities. Tonight, you'll hear from Micah & Ross Curtis. Do you think what they did is wrong? Or are they heroes for saving their property and possibly a nearby village?
Also tonight, we're tracking Hurricane Bertha.
The first hurricane of the 2008 season is already a category 3 storm with winds of 115 miles per hour. Will Bertha hit the U.S.? We'll have the latest.
And, the three Americans rescued from the jungles of Colombia last week are speaking out. You'll hear what they are saying about their captors.
Plus, A-Rod's lost love. The wife of the Yankee slugger is seeking a divoce. She says their marriage is "broken" because of his "extra-marital affairs". Is the other woman Madonna (as in the Material Girl)?
