Colorado wildfires claim two lives and 473 homes

EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. — Two people are dead and 473 homes were burned to the ground as a result of the ongoing Colorado wildfires.

With some help from the skies, the fires are becoming more easy to control.

There are still nearly 40,000 evacuees, but some are starting to make their way home Saturday night.

"It looks like a nuclear bomb went off in some of those areas," said El Paso County sheriff Terry Maketa. "You can't even recognize whether it was a house or some other kind of structure."

Hundreds of people have gone to a disaster assistance center to file claims and start rebuilding.
