BOULDER (WKOW) -- Four people are missing in the area where a wildfire is burning in the foothills near Boulder. The fire is only 10 percent contained.

Authorities say at least 135 homes have been destroyed, making the blaze the most destructive in state history. At 10 square miles, the wildfire's not considered large in size, but it's in a populated area and has left behind serious property damage. With roughly 3,500 people forced to evacuate their homes, the Boulder County sheriff says a lot of people have lost everything, including some firefighters who were busy trying to protect the homes of
others. 

So far, no deaths or injuries have been reported and the cause of the fire remains unknown.
