COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Firefighters are hoping for more help from rainy weather today as they try to put out hot spots from Colorado's most-destructive wildfire ever.
    
Sunday, a steady rain moved through the densely-wooded area near Colorado Springs as crews worked to prevent flare-ups that could burn other homes still standing in the fire zone.
    
Nearly 500 houses have been burned by the 22-square-mile fire, which is about two-thirds contained. Crews hope to have it fully under control by Thursday.
    
Authorities are telling people who live within the burn area that there is still more work to do before they'll be allowed to return to their homes. They say roads and downed power lines have to be repaired.
    
To the southwest, a wildfire that destroyed 48 buildings at the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park is fully contained. A fire in Rocky Mountain National Park, which has burned about 600 acres, is 75 percent contained.
    
In New Mexico, crews have contained the majority of the 94 square miles of wildfires raging through the state.

  • How will pets react to solar eclipse?

    How will pets react to solar eclipse?

    Wednesday, August 16 2017 10:36 PM EDT2017-08-17 02:36:36 GMT

    SPOKANE, Wash. - As many of us look forward to next week's eclipse, it could bring some unexpected reactions from certain furry members of your family. The thing is, there's not a lot of research about how pets or even wild animals react to solar eclipses, simply because they don't happen that often. Unlike fireworks, the eclipse won't make noise, so your pets probably won't be scared of it, but every animal is different.
