Yuma County fire

Authorities say at least two homes have been destroyed and three firefighters injured in a large fire in Yuma County. That's west of Denver.

Mike McCaleb, emergency manager in neighboring Washington County, says the blaze started at about 1:15 p.m. Sunday south of Yuma, and firefighters are battling low visibility and gusty winds. He says the fire is estimated to be about 10 miles long and about a mile and a half wide.

There were reverse 911 calls to tell residents to evacuate the area. Right now, we don't know how many people were told to leave.
