My son just posted some photos on Facebook of the fires approaching Co.Springs.


And his ex posted that she's taking the kids out of town to get away from the smoke.

Yes. Eight Wild fires in Colorado at this moment. This break my heart to open Drudge this morning and see a photo of a nice home, in Colorado Springs, going up in flames. It was a very dry winter and so far this year little precipitation. I been praying and watching since we are leaving AZ for business in CO next week.

Edit Update: According to the real time map it seems the fire fighters controlled one wildfire at the state line.

We're 100 miles west by southwest of it. I am absolutely stunned by that photo I posted. The life and property this monster is and has taking must be unimaginable!

These fires are out of control, I think the one down in the Springs is dwarfing the one here in Ft. Collins now they just need to get em down!
