BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: In this country, a wind-driven wildfire covering 7,000 acres in the foothills outside Boulder , Colorado , has doubled in size just today, destroyed dozens of houses in its path. About 3,000 residents evacuated from their homes. By the way, some of the homes that were lost belonged to the firefighters that were trying to put the fire out. Gusty winds grounded a lot of air tanker aircraft for much of the day today, which, of course, hurt the firefighting effort.
