Reuters reports that authorities have found a second body in the debris of a burned-out home in Colorado Springs, marking the second fatality from a fierce wildfire in Colorado.
Police Chief Peter Carey released no further details about the victim, who becomes the sixth person killed this year in a Colorado wildfire season described by the governor as the worst in the state's history.
The discovery came on the same day that President Barack Obama visited the affected area.
Some 347 homes have also been destroyed by the wildfire.
