Boulder, Colo. (AP) Firefighters continue to battle a stubborn, wind-driven fire near Denver.
The blaze in Boulder County triggered the evacuations of more than 900 homes as it scorched grasslands.
The fire has burned nearly three square miles, destroying two barns and two homes. Only two minor injuries among firefighters are reported. Officials say the wind has died down, so the fire isn’t spreading as quickly.
The fire is believed to have started when winds knocked down a power line. The blaze was one of three wildfires that swept through the county Wednesday. The two others have been contained.
