Second death confirmed in Colorado Springs wildfire
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Reuters) - Authorities have found a second body in the debris of a burned-out home in Colorado Springs, marking the second fatality from a fierce wildfire that ranks as Colorado's most destructive on record after incinerating 347 homes, police said.
Police Chief Peter Carey released no further details about the victim, who becomes the sixth person killed this year in a Colorado wildfire season described by the governor as the worst in the state's history. The discovery came on the same day that President Barack Obama visited the affected area.
