New Colorado wildfire prompts evacuations
GOLDEN, Colo. -- A fast-moving fire broke out early Wednesday in the foothills west of Denver, forcing some residents to flee their homes in an upscale area. A firefighting plane on its way to the blaze was damaged when it veered off a runway while taking off.
Authorities suspected a passing train sparked the fires, which had burned about 100 acres by midday. It was 70 percent contained by Wednesday afternoon.
No injuries were reported and no structures had been damaged, said Jefferson County sheriff's spokesman Jim Shires.
