Wind driven flames are burning through canyons near Colorado Springs in the Waldo Canyon Fire. The hot, dry and windy conditions have fueled rampaging wildfires across Colorado and forced more than 10,000 people from their homes. Reg flag warnings are in effect across portions of 10 states, meaning "a combination of strong winds, low relative humidity and warm temperatures will create explosive fire growth potential."
