Members of Miccosukee Tribe refuse to evacuate from fire

Some members of the Miccosukee Tribe of Florida refused an order to evacuate for a fire that threatened their homes.

"A U.S. Army could never get us out and Hurricane Andrew couldn't get us out so, we're not going to evacuate for this fire either," Colley Billie told WSVN-TV.

The fire came about 40 feet from the homes but crews kept it at bay as it moved in a different direction.
