More than 900 prisoners were evacuated from a state prison near Colorado Springs, Colo., early Wednesday as one of four wildfires across the Front Range moved toward the facility, The Associated Press writes.
Colorado Public Radio's Megan Verlee tells our Newscast Desk that at least 60 homes have been destroyed by one of the fires. The most damaging blaze so far, she says, is the Black Forest Fire that has engulfed some homes in a heavily wooded development near Colorado Springs.
There are no reports of injuries or deaths at this point.
