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.
