(AP) — A wildfire whipped by winds that reached 60 mph destroyed five homes and several outbuildings in southern Colorado.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports the fire started east of the city on Tuesday afternoon and forced more than 200 families from their homes. No injuries were reported, and the fire had slowed by late afternoon.

Pueblo County sheriff’s deputies and other officers went door to door to warn residents to get out, and gusty winds were expected to continue into the night.
