The fire fight continues in Colorado, where at a moment’s notice, thousands more people could be told to evacuate as the flames continue to spread near Colorado Springs.
Firefighters are attacking the blaze from the ground and from above. But already, thousands of acres are charred and around 100 homes lost. The black forest fire, the largest of the active fires burning in the state, is taking the biggest toll on the land and on resources.
For those standing by for word on their homes, pictures like these only fan the feelings of helplessness.
