Bob Rosso, owner of The Elephants Perch sports store in Sun Valley, Idaho, talks about the impact of the Beaver Creek Fire on businesses in this resort region on Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013. Rosso says this is the third fire in the last six years to interrupt businesses, but it's by far the worst. Though he stayed open throughout the evacuation of nearby neighborhoods, other stores surrounding his shuttered their doors as the smoke and ashes littered the town. (AP Photo/John Miller)
