Waldo Fire, Colorado Springs

This fire more than doubled overnight from 6500 acres to 15,500 acres. It is a nightmare! 32,000 people were evacuated yesterday. My daughter, Crystal Cannon, took this photo last evening on her way home from work. Her husband is a volunteer firefighter, and was sent out last night to fight the fire. She and the kids have the car packed and ready to go, if ordered.


And here is one her husband published to FB, unknown photographer.


I know I don’t normally publish about out-of-state wildfires, but this one is hitting close to home for me.
