COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado Springs is planning to tap its emergency fund for $10 million to pay for fire and flood protection.

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette (http://tinyurl.com/bm4j5ku ), the announcement expected Wednesday would include $ 1 million for forest management, $6 million for flood-mitigation projects, including areas damaged by fire, and $100,000 for a scientific study of the Waldo Canyon fire.

Last year, two people died in the Waldo Canyon Fire, which burned 346 homes and 28 square miles in Colorado Springs.
