A blaze burning in northern Colorado on Sunday has grown to 22 square miles within about 24 hours and destroyed or damaged 18 structures. A fire in southern New Mexico that began Friday is now listed at 40 square miles due to better mapping. It has destroyed at least 20 structures.

The New Mexico fire is much closer to homes than the Whitewater-Baldy fire, the largest fire in the state's history. It's also still burning.

No containment lines have been built around the latest Colorado or New Mexico fires.
