Parts of Colorado are being overtaken by wildfires, and people are losing their homes. Firefighters are doing their best to beat back the blaze, but with little success.

The fires in Colorado have really taken a toll on many lives. There have been four reported deaths, and more than 30,000 people have been forced from their homes. The evacuation is expanding, and now the fires are coming down upon US Air Force Academy.

Over 15,000 acres have been charred by the fires, and President Barack Obama plans on visiting the area on Friday. Governor John Hickenlooper said that this is the worst fire season that Colorado has seen in years.
