President Barack Obama is surveying the devastation from raging wildfires in Colorado as he arrives aboard Air Force One.
Obama viewed the smoking scene Friday as his airplane made its descent into Colorado.
Obama has declared a "major disaster" in the state and promised federal aid.
More than 30,000 people around Colorado Springs have fled their homes in what has become the most destructive wildfire in state history. At least one person has died, and nearly 350 homes have burned.
Obama's visit is also a political one. Colorado is one of the nation's top battleground states in the November election.
