Raging wildfires forced hundreds of residents to flee homes in Colorado and New Mexico on Sunday as high winds and high temperatures fanned the flames, authorities said.

In central New Mexico, about 1,500 people fled the "Little Bear" fire near Ruidoso to shelters set up by churches and the Red Cross.
