COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Fire crews in Colorado are slowly gaining control over the Waldo Canyon fire near Colorado Springs.
The fire ranks as the most destructive in state history, having destroyed nearly 350 houses, but it's now 55 percent contained. Some 1,500 firefighters are on the scene. Forecasts call for more dry thunderstorms with winds up to 40 miles an hour. But fire officials say crews are prepared, and they're expressing confidence that the fire lines will keep the flames from spreading any farther.
The blaze is just one of several still burning across the West, where parched conditions and heat are making the fight difficult for crews in Utah, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and Nevada.
An Air Force cargo plane crashed Sunday as it was fighting a fire in South Dakota. Military officials have not released any information about on deaths or injuries or how many were onboard.
