    Fires in Colorado

    I live in Colorado Springs and I'm watching the Northwest side going up in flames from the Waldo Canyon Fire. It's scary how close it is to where I am.

    How are you doing? Fires getting any closer? Lot of smoke?

    I hope that you are able to keep both your family and your home safe!

    Best of luck!

    Lots of smoke and ash. The fire is still burning and the evacuations have widened.

    Re: Fires in Colorado

    Hi. I'm in neighboring Utah and there are fires popping up all over the state. It is very scary. We've had some bad air quality here from all the fires out there too.

    A few years ago, I had one come up to the the ridge of the hill right by my house. There is nothing more upsetting to not knowing if it was going to hit the house or not. Thankfully they were able to stop it. Things could have been much much worse.

    I can only imagine how stressed you are right now. My prayers are with you.

    Wow, those fires are growing so incredibly quickly. 300 homes down in your fire today. I hope you are well.

    Hello Realhouswife

    It must seem surreal to see what is transpiring before your very eyes.

    I'm going to keep all affected in my prayer.

    How do you feel?

    It's ok to feel angry and yet concerned(if this is the case).

    If you're up to it,please keep us posted;whether it be about the fire;your reaction to it all.

    Know that you're amongst friends here.

    With Respectful Intent

    The fire is 100% contained. 346 homes were destroyed and 2 people died. It's now the costliest fire in Colorado history.

    Luckily it never became the "armageddon" that people had predicted. It's sad that 2 people died though but at least it wasn't more considering how much time they had to evacuate-15 minutes on most cases.

    Hello realhousewife

    Thank you so much for the update.
    Hate to sound cliche but now is the time that the healing begins.

    346 homes destroyed and two deaths.

    Yes,it could've been much worse.

    A heartfelt thank-you to all the fire-fighters,rescue teams,paramedics,counselors,volunteers and everyone else that I have unintentionally left out.

    My condolences to the families of the deceased and my heartfelt sympathies with those who have lost their homes.

    I pray that Colorado can end up showing its' resiliency some time in the near future,as an entire state was affected in one way or another from this catastrophy.

    Sincere Respect
    Phoenix
