The Catskill Mountains wildfire has been burning for four days. It could take more than three more days to extinguish the fire that has burned more than four square miles of forest.

The fire has caused evacuations, and officials believe the blaze started when a homeowner burned debris outside, violating a state-wide burn ban – in effect until May 15.
