Colorado's worst outbreak of wildfires in history is still raging across the state.
President Obama, touring the devastation today for the first time outside Colorado Springs, described it as a "major disaster." With only 15 percent of the Waldo Canyon fire contained, 16,700 acres have been scorched, 346 homes have been destroyed, and another 20,000 homes are still standing in harm's way.
One person has been found dead in one of the destroyed homes. Our own Jim Spellman is in Colorado tracking the story.
