Idaho firefighter David Inskee holds his radio in the air for better reception as he keeps an eye on wildfires along highway 149 west of Creede, Colo., Monday, June 24, 2013. Crews defending small homes, a ski area and a handful of roads against an erratic wildfire in Colorado's southwest mountains hoped Monday for a break — any break — in the weather that will allow them to launch a more strategic assault on the backcountry blaze.
