CO Wildfire Forces Evacuations

A Colorado fire that doubled in size Saturday is expected to be fanned by strong winds Sunday, officials said. The more than 3,500-acre blaze grew Saturday, forcing the evacuation of 583 homes in the area and destroying at least one unoccupied cabin, according to a spokesman for the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office. And while a local fire spokesman said that snow would be welcomed by those battling the blaze, the forecast Sunday only anticipates more wind.
