A large wildfire continues to rage in parts of Colorado, swallowing up dozens of buildings and leading to multiple evacuations.
Thick smoke and flames has spread over 58-square miles in a mountainous region west of Fort Collins.
At least 18 structures were lost or damaged due to the fire with more threatened.
Over the weekend, 2,000 notices were sent to residents to leave their homes.
The National Guard deployed helicopters to aid in evacuation efforts.
400 firefighters are battling the growing wildfire, but so far, there has been zero containment.
One person is missing from a home destroyed by the fire and more are believed to be missing.
The cause of the fire is still unknown, but dryer than normal conditions are fueling the flames.
