In Colorado, hundreds of homeowners have fled as a 20-acre wildfire continued to burn a path toward their homes, emergency officials said Friday. By mid-morning, 50 firefighters from at least a dozen departments were on hand amid burning brush and billowing smoke, and 223 homes had to be evacuated, the website said.

More than two dozen fires have been reported in several cities across the state, and the warm weather forecast for the weekend will not make extinguishing them any easier.
