Colorado Wildfires Threaten Air Force's Football Stadium

The Air Force Academy's picturesque setting near the Rocky Mountains makes for a great view during home games each season. However, wildfires in the Western half of the United States are threatening Colorado Springs (and Falcon Stadium), forcing the academy to evacuate some of its cadets. 

There's still time to prevent the fire from spreading onto the Air Force's campus, but high temperatures and dry weather are making this a difficult job for firefighters.

There's some distance between the fires and Falcon Stadium, so it doesn't appear to be in immediate danger. However, the fires are inching closer to campus and will be something to monitor over the next few days.
