Tens of thousands flee Colorado wildfires – BBC News

Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated and hundreds of homes have been destroyed as wildfires spread through the US state of Colorado.

The fast-moving fires are burning in Boulder County, north of Denver, and officials say deaths and injuries are likely as the blazes spread further.

Some 30,000 people in the towns of Louisville and Superior were told to leave their homes on Thursday.

Governor Jared Polis declared a state of emergency, saying: “This fire is not so much a question of resources. This fire is a force of nature.”
