Deputies go door-to-door in Colo. wildfire

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - More people are out of their homes after deputies from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office went door-to-door overnight evacuating more people as danger from a wildfire increased dramatically.

The sheriff's office said Thursday that they also worked throughout the night compiling a list of homes destroyed or damaged by the fire, which spread quickly Tuesday, forcing thousands of people out of their homes.

Sheriff's officials said Thursday the fire has destroyed 360 homes. About 40,000 people have been told to leave their homes, including some now in Colorado Springs.
