Getting help in CO

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - C-130 cargo planes are expected to head out today to help fight a Colorado wildfire that's burned up to 60 homes northeast of Colorado Springs.

Fire officials say six helicopters and an air tanker already are at the scene of the blaze that's forced some 6,400 people to evacuate.

Cooler temperatures and calmer winds overnight have helped firefighters battle at least four wildfires in the state.
