Fires burn across the West - Photo Gallery 2/12

Barb Otte of West Richland holds a neighbor’s horse as she watches a line of flames head across Red Mountain in West Richland, Wash., late Monday afternoon Aug. 13, 2012. Several of Kelly Arthur-Moore’s neighbors rushed to help her pull three horses and other pets out of harms way. “That’s just what neighbors do,” Otte said. Firefighters from several Mid-Columbia agencies attacked the blaze that burned a large portion of the north side of Red Mountain. AP photo
