'Wind event'



The damaged roof of a home along Toad Road off Kirk Lane east of Durango is seen Wednesday after firefighters checked the area. It appeared to be “a wind event,” said Upper Pine Fire Deputy Chief Randy Larson. “It sounded like thunder and a lot of wind. It just happened very quickly,” said neighbor Sherie Croft. Croft lost the roof to her shed. The home was monitored for flammable gases, and a rescue crew searched for possible victims, Larson said. All the utilities were also shut down, Larson said.
