Gawkers Flood Adams County

It's not the flames, but fleets of gawkers slowing down fire crews in Adams County, who are trying to keep hot spots under control following last week's massive forest fire.

Hundreds of vehicles have been streaming through the fire zone, hampering firefighters' movements.

Four–thousand acres of land burned, and 30 permanent and vacation homes were lost by Thursday's fire.

Despite that, federal disaster aid won't be made available for victims.
50 buildings need to be lost before that can happen.

Governor Doyle is asking state agencies to step in and help underinsured families who've lost everything.
