Tens of Thousands Flee Colo Springs Fire

June 27, 2012

More than 30,000 people are out of their homes this morning, evacuees from the Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs.  That fire has been burning since Saturday without damaging any structures, but late Tuesday afternoon it took a turn for the worse.  Now it looks as if many homes on the northwestern edge of Colorado Springs have been destroyed, and more may be threatened.  Colorado Public Radio’s Megan Verlee is in Colorado Springs and spoke with Colorado Public Radio's Mike Lamp.
