Colorado wildfires: President Obama declares disaster

Help

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.
