Colorado Wildfires

Carson's 4th Combat Aviation Brigade drops water behind a home and between advancing flames as the Black Forest Fire burns out of control for a second straight day near Colorado Springs, Colo. on Wednesday, June 12, 2013. Three Colorado wildfires fueled by hot temperatures, gusty winds and thick, bone-dry forests have together burned dozens of homes and led to the evacuation of more than 7,000 residents and nearly 1,000 inmates at medium-security prison.
