Wildfires Threaten More Homes In Colorado
Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper said parts of his state look like the worst movie set you could imagine. MSNB reported A fire outside of Colorado Springs has prompted an evacuation of another 9,000 residents as more homes were burned to the ground. A prolonged drought is being blamed for the quick spread of the fires, and record setting heat is making it tough on the firefighters. The High Park Fire has destroyed 275 homes and killed one person, but fire officials said many homes have been saved by the work of firefighters. Currently, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and Colorado are under red flag warnings.
