Wildfires char thousands of acres in Colorado
NBC News: A series of wildfires flared up across three separate regions of Colorado on Tuesday, burning across thousands of acres and forcing evacuations as the fires stretched the limits of state and local fire agencies.
A red-flag warning was put into effect for southeastern Colorado through Tuesday night as 95-degree temperatures and strong winds contributed to “critical fire weather conditions,” the National Weather Service reported.
The largest of the blazes, the Black Forest Fire in El Paso County, had grown to between 7,500 and 8,000 acres and damaged or destroyed 40 to 60 structures, authorities said.
