Fire season has started with a vengeance. Fire broke out in several spots this afternoon in several spots, one of which is right around the corner from the house. Fire is spreading fast to the NE, just jumped the main road north of me.

Couple videos here, my take a minute to load. Might want to turn down the speaker volume due to wind static, but gives you an idea of what the firefighters are dealing with. http://s1195.photobucket.com/user/RDurb ... t=3&page=1
Royal Gorge area also has a large fire to the south of me near Canon City.
The fires have made the news locally; really listened last evening and first thing this morning. Sorry to hear it's happening again. Hope you and your family stays safe and without any fire damage.
The pictures you posted are too close for comfort.
Been watching it on CNN. Hope the fire stays away from you. In our prayers (+)
Evacuating now. No power due to burned lines and substations dropping out.
Fire is just over the hill from here
Uggh! Sorry to hear it! Stay safe!
Praying the fire will spare your home.
Wow, I hope they can contain it and keep it from you and your neighbors property. Bless those fire fighters too. Flying those planes into that inferno just seems crazy; god love'em.

Good news for us, bad for others, the wind shifted this morning and pushed the fire north and west very quickly.
Evacuation centers that were set up had to be evacuated again as the fire doubled back NW heading towards I-25.
Power is back on at the house, bags are packed by the door just in case we need to move out quick.
This is looking north from the south end of the development. Unfortunately this is only about a quarter of the visible fire line on the horizon. It extends far to the left out of the frame towards Colorado Springs.

Great pictures. Thanks for sharing. Hope you remain safe and untouched by the fires.

Glad it's looking better for you. Keep us updated.
Glad that you and the family are ok ... keep us posted.
That IS great news for you and your subdivision! Answered prayer! We'll continue to pray the fires will quickly diminish and go out.
Good news. Hope the fire stays away. Ed

My cousins and their families were evacuated yesterday. They lived on the north side of CS towards Black Forest. I was there last year with the Waldo canyon fire. It's maybe the most frightening experience you could have. Stay safe Ray.

In all things know which way the wind is blowing.
Glad to hear your good news. My grandson is headed to Colorado Springs this weekend for a week long stay. Will there be anything left when he gets there?
Try to stay cool. Roy
