Devastating forest fire in colorado

The two fatalities were probably in the process of fleeing and were surprised by the rapidly spreading flames, police said. The dead were found in the garage next to the packed car, as the local newspaper "denver post" writes. The house was razed to the ground by the flames.

In addition, 360 homes were destroyed in the black forest near the town of colorado springs, according to the sheriff of the municipality of el paso, terry maketa. 38,000 people had to leave their homes. The fire broke out on tuesday and spread in a flash. Drought, strong winds and high temperatures complicate the situation. The cause of the fire initially remained unclear.

This record is "shocking" and already surpasses the destruction of the waldo canyon wildfire near the city of denver last year, maketa said. A total of 750 firefighters are fighting the forest fire. Thursday night, fires raged across a flat 63 square miles. However, the task forces were able to prevent the fire from spreading further for the time being.
