COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado's most destructive wildfire was caused by a human, with more details expected next month.

KMGH reports that investigators have determined June's Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs was caused by a human. Further details were to be released Sept. 12 at a briefing in Colorado Springs.

On June 23 the wildfire exploded and went on to destroy nearly 350 homes and kill two people. That day, on dispatch recordings, at least two firefighters said the fire apparently started in the area they had searched.
