Plague deaths in Colo.: Plague Death Colorado, Pueblo County health officials on Wednesday announced a plague death, the second such death in Colorado this year.

The Pueblo City-County Health Department identified the person only as an adult. Authorities did not say which strain of the plague was responsible for the death.

The person is the fourth in Colorado to contract the plague this year, including a 16-year-old Poudre High School student in Larimer County who was killed by a rare strain of the bacterial infection know as septicemic plague.

The other two cases were in Boulder County and Denver, according to the Colorado Department of Health and Environment.
