COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (WKYT) - A sheriff says remains of two people have been found in an area burned by a wildfire northeast of Colorado Springs, Colo.

El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa says one person who was reported missing Wednesday was found safe, but crews on Thursday found the remains of another person reported missing. About an hour later they found the remains of a second person.

The Black Forest Fire has destroyed at least 360 houses, and an estimated 40,000 people, including some in Colorado Springs, have been ordered to leave their homes.

The blaze is now the most destructive in Colorado history.
