Colorado Springs under threat as 32,000 flee fire

  • 6-28-2012

More than 32,000 people were forced to flee their homes as a raging wildfire threatening the US city of Colorado Springs doubled in size overnight.

Traffic and smoke choked the streets as people hurried to evacuate the city and the nearby US Air Force Academy.

Dry, hot temperatures are expected to continue across much of the US this week, with little chance of rain forecast to dampen the blazes.

Governor John Hickenlooper said ''there is nothing firefighters can do, when you get this kind of weather".
