The mayor of Colorado Springs says a raging wildfire has destroyed an estimated 346 homes, making the blaze the most destructive in state history.

Mayor Steve Bach says city officials assessed the damage and that it was subject to change as they get more information.

It is one of the worst fires to hit the American West in decades, forcing more than 30,000 residents of the state's second-largest city to flee their homes.

The 29-square-mile fire started Saturday and is 10 percent contained. Its cause is under investigation.
