The Beaver Creek Fire burning near the Idaho resort towns of Ketchum and Sun Valley has forced the evacuation of at least 2,250 area homes and an additional 7,500 are prepared to evacuate if necessary.

The lightning-caused fire started Aug. 7 and has rapidly grown to 92,700 acres, or 145-square miles.

Here are some photos and video captured by reporters and people who live in the Wood River Valley from Aug. 16-17.
