New Evacuations Ordered As Wildfire Breaks Out In Foothills

Drake (AP) Another wildfire is forcing people out of their homes, this time in northern Colorado. Some residents in the foothills west of Loveland were told to evacuate Tuesday when a fire broke out, threatening a number of houses.

It's not known yet how many people are being affected. Monday a fire in Summit County forced the evacuation of 20 houses and Summit High School.

Classes at the school were canceled Tuesday so the building could be aired out.
