COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Searchers sifting through damage left by the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history have found the remains of a second person at a home where another person was found dead earlier.

Police Chief Pete Carey said Friday that searchers found the remains at a house where two people had been reported missing after shifting winds forced thousands to flee their homes Tuesday night.

Carey announced on Thursday finding the other person.

The Waldo Canyon Fire has destroyed nearly 350 homes and burned 26 square miles. Its cause hasn't been determined.
