Juan Flores stands in the middle of a burned out forest as he chops down trees in Manton, Calif., Friday, Aug.  24, 2012. Residents of the tiny mountain town of Mineral, Calif., breathed easier Friday after air tankers and helicopters blunted the run of a massive wildfire in Northern California just outside Lassen Volcanic National Park. Sixty-four homes and 20 other buildings have been destroyed, mostly in the Manton area, since lightning ignited the blaze Saturday. AP photo
