Colorado: Town evacuated for brush fire


The town of Boone, Colorado was evacuated Thursday -- as crews battled a brush fire in Pueblo County.

About 230 homes were evacuated and at least one person was taken to the hospital because of the Double Fork Fire.

Smoke from the fire also forced the closure of two highways.

At last check, the fire burned about 450 acres and was about 60 percent contained.

About a hundred firefighters are working to knock out the fire.

There's no word on what caused it.
