Colorado wildfires turn deadly; two confirmed dead – Dan Simon reports

The Black Forest wildfire in Colorado Springs is spreading out of control this morning.

There are 750 firefighters on the front lines, struggling against whipping winds in a losing battle. Flames are literally flying across tree-tops, swallowing up homes in mere seconds, and turning the situation deadly.

Dan Simon is live in Colorado Springs this morning with the latest. “We now have the first two confirmed fatalities,” Simon says.

Two people were found in what was a garage, “They were in the process of fleeing the flames.”
