Tens of thousands flee homes as Colorado wildfire doubles in size overnight | Fox News

Please pray for an end to the devastating wildfires in Colorado.


The following excerpts are from Fox News:
  • A towering wildfire jumped firefighters' perimeter lines and moved into the city of Colorado Springs, forcing frantic evacuation orders for more than 32,000 residents, including the U.S. Air Force Academy, and destroying an unknown number of homes.
  • The fire doubled in size overnight to more than 24 square miles fire information officer Rob Dyerberg said Wednesday.
  • Authorities held a morning press conference Wednesday and urged residents to stay indoors because the air quality has deteriorated. They also denied rumors that they're aware of what started the fires.
  • "It was like looking at the worst movie set you could imagine," Gov. John Hickenlooper said after flying over the fire late Tuesday. "It's almost surreal."
