CO Crash Kills Pilot And May Have Sparked Wildfire

A Colorado fire may have been sparked by a plane crash Sunday that killed one man and injured another.
 
Officials say the passenger, Dr. Robert Hamilton, tried to free his friend and pilot, Sidney Emmert, from the wreckage. It is unclear if the pilot was still alive at the time.
 
Flames started to grow around Dr. Hamilton and he had to abandon the pilot to find help. Federal investigators are looking into the cause of the crash.
 
In the meantime, fire crews have their hands full battling the blaze started from the crash that has grown to 100 acres since the plane crashed into the San Isabel National Forest. About 150 firefighters are doing all they can, but as of yet there is no containment.
