2:09 am
a week ago, his daughter telling me he responded to touch and still squeezed hands. a lot of conflicting information on how ill he is, whether the doctors think he was so sick that the life support machines needed to be turned off a week ago. things have improved because that didn't happen. still, nelson mandela is not going to improve or recover from this bout. >> still so many people standing outside that hospital where you are tracking every development in his condition. of course, this is all happening during a family fight about burial sights, correct? >> reporter: it really hannan emotional month. as you say, the family is been fighting not just about the bones of where his descendents are buried, but where he will be buried. it's a fight that's played out in the public. also, it's played out in the
2:10 am
courts. it's put in the court documents where the family was trying to push for him to be buried in one location. his health was imper less. this is all playing into a messy family feud. south africans are embarrassed by this and pragmatic. nelson mandela's family is perhaps not nelson mandela. >> a great man lies in the hospital behind you. crews battling the arizona wildfire that killed 19 members of an elite hot shot team are making progress this morning. it's led to evacuation orders near prescott, arizona being lifted. the yarnell fire is 80% contained. 500 personnel are working the fire there. the blaze destroyed more than 100 homes. >> they made great progress from
