Epic Colorado fires force 35000 to flee

Some of the country’s best firefighters matched wits Wednesday with a fiendish Colorado wildfire that has scorched structures and sent tens of thousands fleeing from Colorado Springs and other communities. As predicted, erratic winds kicked up again in the afternoon, increasing the chance of embers jumping fire lines and creating more havoc, officials said. “We are learning as we fight this fire some of its tricks,” said incident commander Rich Harvey. “And one of its tricks is to run down these hills that way. You can fool us once, maybe, but not twice.” Officials said they had not completed an inventory of homes and other structures lost or damaged Tuesday by the Waldo Canyon Fire, which was only 5% contained.
