Crews continue to search for bodies in Colo. blaze
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Firefighters went from one smoldering pile to another Friday in search of bodies in the nearly 350 homes burned to the ground by the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history.
As crews on the front lines made slow but steady progress against the flames, Police Chief Pete Carey said fewer than 10 people altogether were unaccounted for. The remains of one person were found Thursday in what was left standing of one home, and the body of a second person who lived there found Friday.
The 26-square-mile blaze – one of several wildfires burning out of control across the tinder-dry West – was reported to be 15 percent contained, and authorities began lifting some of the evacuation orders for the more than 30,000 people who fled their homes a few days ago.
