Firefighting monks and emergency crews have been working to defeat a wildfire burning in the rural hills of Big Sur, Calif. since June 17.

The Willow Fire, as of June 23, was 2,877 acres large with just 13% of it contained.

Though cooler temperatures this week helped slow the spread of the flames, local emergency services said crews are still fighting with difficult terrain that's hampering efforts to quickly contain the fire.

More than half of the buildings in the contiguous U.S. are in disaster hotspots, a new study finds. Tens of millions of homes, businesses and other buildings are concentrated in areas with the most risk from hurricanes, floods, wildfires, tornadoes and earthquakes.

The findings underscore how development patterns exacerbate damage from climate change.

A bipartisan group of senators is "very, very close" to an agreement on a deal for an infrastructure package, Ohio Republican Rob Portman told Capitol Hill reporters Wednesday, and President Biden has invited the group to the White House Thursday.

The invitation follows meetings between White House advisers and the group of senators Wednesday.
