The search for a Colorado woman missing in a wildfire has been suspended after rescuers found human remains in her burned home.
Jefferson County authorities say they don’t know yet whether the remains found Saturday are those of Ann Appel, reported missing since Monday.
If the remains belong to Appel, she would become the third fatality in a wildfire that has scorched about 6 square miles southwest of Denver.
An elderly couple found dead in one of the more than two dozen homes damage or destroyed by the fire were buried Friday.
Residents of about 180 homes remain evacuated.
Firefighters have contained more than 90 percent of the wildfire, which was apparently sparked by a state controlled burn that sprang to life Monday in strong winds.
