Authorities say a second person has been found dead in the area burned by a wildfire southwest of Denver. Jefferson County sheriff’s officials say the second body was discovered near a person found dead Monday. Authorities do not yet know if the deaths were caused by the fire, which has grown to about 7 square miles. The residents of about 900 homes have been evacuated and more are under threat Tuesday as a wind-driven wildfire scorched a mostly rural area in the mountains southwest of Denver.
