Crews Battling Colo. Wildfire Hold Flames In Check

Posted: Updated:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Firefighters in Colorado have finally gotten a break from the weather.
    
After days of hot, dry, gusty conditions, winds eased today and rain rolled into the Colorado Springs area, where crews have been battling the most destructive fire in the state's history.
    
Some evacuation orders have been lifted and officials say the Black Forest Fire is 30 percent contained. But it's already destroyed 400 homes and killed two people.
    
Just one day after they cleared out the Flying Horse neighborhood in northern Colorado Springs, officials let people back into their houses. They also re-opened an eastern stretch of the Black Forest.
    
The Black Forest Fire began Tuesday. Officials warn it is still hot and could flare up again if the weather shifts.
