A massive forest fire tears through the U.S. state of Colorado. The two-week-old blaze has confounded firefighters, who have fought it from the air and ground. They were making progress last week, but high winds and scorching heat on Friday gave the blaze a boost. It's now covering almost 70,000 acres - over a hundred square miles - of countryside north of Denver. The fire has so far killed one person and destroyed almost 200 homes. Andrew Raven, Reuters
