A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) -- The fire quickly moved through about two-thousand acres of brush, or about three square miles, less than four hours after it started.
U-S Forest Service officials say the community of Mountain Home Village was ordered evacuated and nearby Angelus Oaks is under a voluntary evacuation. T-V pictures showed one home ablaze.
A spokeswoman says more equipment and personnel are being called in to join the crews, air tankers and water-dropping helicopters attacking the flames as they move north into the forest.
The weather has been hot and dry, increasing fire danger. The blaze is about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.
