Whether it's your first day of the school year or your first day back from the weekend, thank you so much for spending part of it with CNN STUDENT NEWS.

My name is Carl Azuz.

We start today with the latest developments in Egypt.

The country has been in the news recently because of fighting between government forces and people who support Mohammed Morsy.

He is the former president who was forced out of power this summer.

Large groups of Morsy supporters have been hiding inside this mosque in Cairo, Egypt's capital.

On Saturday, security forces raided the mosque and arrested hundreds of people.

Morsy's supporters say the Egyptian government and the military are responsible for starting the violence that's led to hundreds of deaths.

Egyptian officials say terrorists are to blame for the chaos in their country.

In the northwestern part of the U.S.,hundreds of firefighters are battling a huge wildfire in Idaho.

Over the weekend, an I-reporter captured these photos of the flames.

On Saturday, the fire had spread across nearly 93,000 acres.

To think of that, it's roughly the same area as 93,000 football fields.

Authorities say strong winds and dry conditions are only feeding the flames.

More than 2,200 homes are under evacuation orders.

Brianna Keilar has more on this.

I came up here earlier, and the tears started to come and the heart started to race.

A desperate fight to save lives and property.

The so-called Beaver Creek fire is now threatening to destroy neighborhoods, vacation homes, and ski areas in Ketchum and Sun Valley, Idaho.

Residents are being told to get their essential belongings and pets, and get out now.

My mom prompted me to come down, and I didn't think it was a big deal.

And then coming south, I realized I am glad not to be up north.

While some people are speeding out of town, others are watching the fire from a nearby hillside.

Robert Cole has lived in the area for the past 15 years.

I've seen a lot of disasters in my lifetime,

you know, like tornadoes down in Oklahoma where I come from,

but never any fires that threatened my home like this.

Jack Dees, a local insurance agent, is getting phone calls from his clients.

They want to know where the fire is headed and what's being done to stop it.
