COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (June 16, 2013)--Residents returning to the neighborhoods from which they were driven just days ago by Colorado's most destructive wildfire ever, were seeing firsthand the path of destruction left behind by the flames.
The fire in a rural region northeast of Colorado Springs was 55 percent contained Sunday following huge advances by firefighters in recent days, aided by unexpected rain showers and calmer winds.
Jack and Judy Roe thought their home was among the nearly 500 that were destroyed but found it standing amid other scorched houses in their neighborhood.
They say that was "a big relief," but that their "hearts were breaking" for their neighbors.
