DENVER (AP) -- Multiple wildfires are burning in Colorado, including one that destroyed a Boy Scout camp and several homes.

The Black Forest fire is still burning and firefighters battled the Lime Gulch, East Peak, Wild Rose, Bull Gulch and West Fork fires.

The East Peak fire in Huerfano County destroyed a Boy Scout camp late Wednesday and some homes. Authorities say flames reached 150 feet into the air. Sheriff's deputies were attempting to evacuate the area.

A fire in the foothills about 30 miles southwest of Denver forced evacuations Wednesday affecting more than 100 people.
