"We did not know until today whether the bridge was still standing," Peggy Gair said.
Gair says fire at the park burned a visitor's center, a tramway building, a carousel and several restaurants.
There were other fires in the state as well, including in Grand and Huerfano Counties. Statewide, officials warned that such blazes have proven tough to handle due to a combination of factors.
"Fire severity is extreme as reported in multiple areas," the state office of emergency management said, "and fires are escaping initial attack, as evident by the number of large fires."
