More firefighters are expected to arrive Monday at a large wildfire that is burning in and around Glenwood Springs.

Since Saturday, it's spread to 7300 acres and has destroyed 24 homes and damaged 20 other buildings.

More than 3,000 people have been evacuated. There is no word on when this fire might be contained. Investigators think a coal seam fire that has been smoldering for decades may have started this fire.
