Fire crews in Colorado made progress overnight battling an out-of-control wildfire that has destroyed nearly 350 homes and killed one person.
KSBY'S Dan Shadwell and Chief Photojournalist Kelly Teel are in Colorado Springs helping our sister station KOAA with their fire coverage.
The fire information officer Dan interviewed live on Daybreak this morning said the fire is now 15 percent contained, which is up from ten percent from last night.
While they are gaining on the fire, the information officer warns "it's not over, but we've got a good handle on it for now."
He added the weather is starting to cooperate with higher humidity levels today that will help firefighters get in "a lot of good work today."
The White House has said President Obama is set to tour some of the most devastated areas later today.
