WILDFIRE


Second Death Confirmed in CO

“I’m kind of dreading returning,” one Colorado Springs resident said as firefighters continued to fight back a blaze outside the town Saturday. Two people have been confirmed dead, and 350 homes have been destroyed after a wildfire swept into the town’s outskirts. President Obama visited the area ravaged by the Waldo Canyon fire, which has caused more than 35,000 people to evacuate. The president promised federal aid to the stricken area, saying, “We have been putting everything we have into trying to deal with what are the worst fires we’ve seen here in Colorado.”
