COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) Authorities in El Paso County are giving an update on the investigation into the most destructive wildfire in Colorado's history.
Sheriff Terry Maketa is set to release an after-action report on the Black Forest Fire Tuesday morning.
The fire started a year ago this week. It destroyed nearly 500 houses and killed two people north of Colorado Springs.
Investigators have said the fire was human caused. However, Maketa has said there's no evidence that it was arson, putting him at odds with the local fire chief who has said that it appears to have been intentionally set.
