COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., June 28 Authorities
have found a body in the debris of a burned-out home in Colorado
Springs, marking the first fatality from a fierce wildfire that
ranks as Colorado's most destructive on record after
incinerating 346 homes, police said.
Police Chief Peter Carey released no further details about
the victim, who becomes the fifth person killed this year in a
Colorado wildfire season described by the governor as the worst
in the state's history. The police chief said he also had
reports of two adults missing in the so-called Waldo Canyon
Fire, which had forced the evacuation of some 35,000 people.
