Colorado resident: "the smoke plume was coming toward us"

Hot, dry and windy conditions - which have fueled rampaging wildfires across Colorado and forced more than 11,000 people from their homes - will continue to plague the region through at least midweek.

In northern Colorado, the state's largest fire, the High Park fire, has already charred more than 83,000 acres and destroyed nearly 250 homes in the Fort Collins area.

Colorado resident Jaime Astorga was forced out of his home back when the fire erupted on June 9 and gives CNN's Joe Johns his account of being evacuated.
