article imageBoulder, Colorado wildfires destroy dozens of homes

By KJ Mullins     Sep 8, 2010 in Environment
Boulder - Dozens of homes have burnt to the ground in Boulder, Colorado from a wildfire that has covered 3,500 acres and is still spreading.
On Monday a wildfire that started about six miles north of the city forced the evacuation of 1,000 homes after dozens more burnt. CNN reports that there are 22 people missing.
"We did mandatory evacuations, but we still had people who didn't leave," said Rick Brough of the Boulder County Sheriff's Office in a press release. "There's many subdivisions up there."
Wind gusts of 45 mph have helped spread the fire. Seven tankers, two spotter aircraft and three helicopters worked Tuesday to help put out the blaze.
There is no known cause of the fire.
