Evacuee captures California wildfire up close

Firefighters are desperately working to contain a raging California wildfire that's burning almost out of control. Nearly 30 square miles have burned near Idyllwild and Fern Valley, prompting an evacuation order for more than 6,000 residents. More than 4,000 homes are threatened by the fire.

CNN's Wolf Blitzer spoke to Jenny Kirchner, who was evacuated from her home. Before she left, Kirchner, a freelance photographer, grabbed her camera and took some shots within just a few feet from the flames.
