Arvada, Colo. (AP) Firefighters contained several grass fires near Arvada that destroyed a home and an outbuilding. There were no reports of injuries.
Scott Pribble of the Arvada fire protection district says sparks from a train's wheels started at least seven fires yesterday along a five-mile stretch of track west of town.
Pribble said one house was destroyed. Its resident, a 90-year-old woman, and another person were evacuated before flames engulfed the structure.
Firefighters were putting out hotspots yesterday afternoon.
