Wildfires Unfurl in Colorado, Spurring Evacuations and Closing a National Forest

Wildfires have burned across tens of thousands of acres of parched terrain in Colorado, spurring thousands of evacuations and compelling officials to seal off a national forest from the public on Tuesday.

Ms. Griffee said that when wildfires sweep through forested areas and other uninhabited lands where more building has occurred, “that is part of the reason why we have so many structures evacuated.”
