URGENT - Colorado Fire
(CNN) -- El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa said he feels more encouraged about results of firefighting efforts in the Black Forest Fire in Colorado, which had been dubbed as the state's most destructive fire. He said authorities and firefighters "gained some tremendous ground" when it came to identifying hotspots and saving structures. "To me, it was the turning point we were looking for," though he acknowledged conditions could change, he said.
