Another Wildfire In Colorado Prompting Evacuations

Just as firefighters in Boulder County are beginning to feel confident that they have containment of a fire that has destroyed at least 169 homes in the last week, another wildfire--this one in Larimer County--is prompting evacuations.

Residents of the Bitterroot Gulch, Quillen Gulch Road, Sawmill Road and Bone Elk Road neighborhoods near Loveland have been ordered to evacuate their homes.

The 600-acre, fire has reportedly destroyed one home and is threatening several more structures.

Witnesses are describing a second fire just miles from the original Larimer County fire.
