COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. >> President Barack Obama says that when disasters such as the wildfires consuming parts of Colorado strike, "America comes together."

Obama on Friday visited subdivisions hit by the worst wildfire in Colorado's history. He toured neighborhoods of charred homes with plumes of smoke visible in the nearby mountains.

Said Obama: "We all recognize that there but for the grace of God go I. We've got to make sure that we have each others' backs."

He praised coordination among federal, state and local authorities. He also saluted firefighters who had saved homes from the flames, calling them "genuine heroes."
