Firefighters in Colorado and New Mexico are hoping damper weather and calmer winds will help them battle two large wildfires burning out of control.

The flames have already destroyed more than 100 buildings and forced hundreds of people from their homes.

No injuries are reported so far, but Colorado officials say one person remains missing.

Authorities suspect lightning caused both fires but say their investigation continues.
