ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos have pledged to make a $50,000 donation to assist with relief efforts as wildfires continue to burn across Colorado.

Broncos owner Pat Bowlen also encouraged the team's fans to help provide relief in any way they can.

Bowlen expressed sympathy for residents affected by the fires, particularly those who have lost their homes or have been evacuated.

Three major wildfires are burning in the state, including one that has forced more than 30,000 residents from their homes in the Colorado Springs area.
