    Default Colorado Fires

    Hey everyone. I know that we have quite a few Linkers that are in the Colorado area and the fires are looking pretty nasty. I hope everyone there ends up being ok.

    Anyway, I wanted to open a thread not just to chat about the news, but to see if anyone who is affected might need any assistance. vhouttaspacejj, just mentioned in the tour thread that he was being evacuated and the fires are in his neighborhood.

    Here's a link from one of the local news outlets...

    http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news...56/detail.html

    I'm quite a bit to the north of that Colorado Springs fire, but we had a lot of smoke from it last night. It is really horrendous to see the images of the devastation this morning. There are Still about 9 other fires burning in our state as well ;-(. Really tough times right now.
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    Terrifying and heartbreaking in equal measure...I hope everyone escapes unharmed.

    Incidentally, is there any information as to how it / they started?

    I think most of the fires were started by lightening strikes.

    For those of you not familiar with Colorado, it is a beautiful mountain state with tourism being a huge industry. The Waldo Canyon fire is especially heartbreaking because it has spread to homes in Colorado Springs now. According to reports, it doubled in size overnight with little or no containment.

    My heart goes out to all involved and prayers to the families involved & all the brave firefighters.

    Some parts of the AFA have been closed... It's really a huge complex.
    A little rain today, but with it a lot of wind. The battle continues. Looks like the president is coming into town Friday.
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    Not sure what part of town that is in Colorado Springs.


    That's the chapel at the Air Force Academy.

    Any linkers in the area that may need help, support, etc, please let someone know. Just shout out!

    Any updates re: Colorado Springs? Nothing in the news due to the obama
    care and the Holder situation, which admittedly are big stories

    32,000 people out of their homes still
    346 homes destroyed
    18,500 acres as of this morning
    they do have the fire 10% contained, which is good news.

    Other good news is some rain in the area of the Waldo Canyon fire (Colorado Springs) this afternoon. Also rain up north in the High Park fire area(Ft. Collins) which is actually bad and good. It's bad cause the earth is so dry and there's nothing to hold the water that the rain will run off and cause flash flooding
    A little more volume in the headphones please.
