US President Barack Obama has arrived in Colorado to visit neighbourhoods where wildfires have forced tens of thousands from their homes.

The visit comes after Mr Obama issued a disaster declaration, allowing federal funds to be used to combat the blaze.

One person was declared dead after human remains were found in a burned-out home in Colorado Springs.
