4 people missing in Colo. wildfire

BOULDER— Four residents of an area burned by a wildfire near Boulder remain missing.

Authorities said earlier today that eight people were unaccounted for. Since then one more person was reported missing and a total of five have been accounted for.

Some residents have refused to leave the area and stayed behind, risking their lives to try to save their homes. Authorities have been following up with family members and checking homes in the area to find the missing.

The fire is burning on 6,388 acres, just under 10 square miles. Some rain began to fall on the area as authorities gave their afternoon briefing.

Crews attacked the blaze from the air and on the ground but officials say they still don’t have control of the fire.
