Napolitano, Vilsack to visit Colo., Idaho


DENVER | Obama administration officials will be visiting Colorado and Idaho to learn more about the response to the destructive wildfires in the West.

Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano and agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack on Tuesday plan to travel to Colorado Springs, where a wildfire is blamed for killing two people and destroying nearly 350 houses.

They’ll then head to Boise, home of the National Interagency Fire Center, which supports wildland firefighting efforts around the country.
