Skooter reporting 06/30/12
In the most devastating wildfire in Colorado history, firefighters searching for bodies in the approximately 350 homes swallowed up by the blaze found a second body Friday at a residence where earlier another person was discovered dead. On the front lines, firefighters made slow but steady progress against the flames, there were fewer than 10 people altogether were unaccounted for, Police Chief Pete Carey said.
Carey said one dead person was found Thursday in what was left of one home and also confirmed the remains of a second person who lived there were found Friday.
It was reported that 25 percent of the 26-square-mile blaze one of several wildfires burning across the tinder-dry West was controlled, and some of the evacuation orders for more than 30,000 people who escaped from the blaze a few days ago were lifted by authorities.
Authorities reported Friday that earlier in the week, the fire added no ground through the night. The weather had cleared up and quiet, a welcome break from the thunder storm and high wind that drove the flames.
More than 1,000 personnel and six helicopters were fighting the fire.
