COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) A wildfire in the Black Forest area northeast of Colorado Springs is burning homes, and another fire that led to the evacuation of Royal Gorge Bridge & Park has burned three structures.
Video from a helicopter above the Black Forest area shows several homes in a heavily wooded area burning Tuesday.
To the south, the Bureau of Land Management says three structures have been lost in a fire that has charred 300 acres south of the Royal Gorge Bridge and the Arkansas River.
Embers from the fire are reaching north of the river.
Royal Gorge Bridge & Park spokeswoman Peggy Gair tells The Gazette that several hundred people have been evacuated from the park.
Meanwhile, in northern Colorado, a wildfire in Rocky Mountain National Park is growing and sending out large plumes of smoke.
