Fire In American Forest: About 580 houses, a hotel and a shopping center were destroyed by the outbreak of a forest fire in Denver in the US state of Colorado. Thousands of people from the surrounding areas have been shifted to safer places. At least seven people were injured in a fire Thursday morning on the outskirts of Denver.
Boulder County Sheriff (county legal affairs officer) Joe Pell said there was a fear of more casualties as the fire spread through the area, triggered by winds of up to 169 kilometers per hour. Pell said that there is such a huge fire that it cannot be controlled immediately. The deputy sheriff and firefighters deployed in the area also had to leave for the rescue operation.
The city of Louisville, with a population of about 21,000, was ordered to evacuate. Earlier orders were given to evacuate Superior, which has a population of about 13,000. These neighboring cities are located approximately 20 miles (32 kilometers) northwest of Denver.
This fire started in the Colorado forest on Thursday. Many parts of the area were filled with smoke due to the forest fire spread over 6.5 square kilometers and flames were seen rising in the sky. Officials are monitoring the situation and seeing when rescuers can go to the affected area to rescue the trapped people and assess the damage. An inch of snowfall has been predicted in the area on Friday, which is likely to help in controlling the fire.
