Colorado and Utah wildfires

A wind-fueled wildfire of epic proportions breached fire lines June 26 and entered Colorado Springs, Colorado, bringing to at least 32,000 the number of people evacuated in the area and at the U.S. Air Force Academy, and having burned at least 18,000 acres and 346 homes since.


Other wildfires have affected areas of Colorado and Utah since that time.
