    UPDATE: Carpenter One Fire Still Rages


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Jonathan Santos had seen the Mt. Charleston wildfire in Las Vegas while hiking on July Fourth, but he was surprised when he saw the blaze was still active yesterday on his way home from work. He thought it was cloudy at first, but then realized it was smoke 'blanketing the sky and the sun was burning red,' he said. Santos said the scene reminded him of a 1991 Mt. Pinatubo volcanic eruption in his native Philippines. 'It looks like a volcanic eruption, but much milder. It still gave a cloudy haze over Las Vegas.'
