Afraid it's getting bigger. Wind shifted last night and the smoke was thick as far east as Powers.

MUCH worse. Looks like it is heading down toward North Mountain Shadows and Peregrine subdivisions. Both were just put on mandatory evacuation orders.

I guess another fire just started in Boulder. It's crazy.

I've been listening to KRDO.com and it was just announced that Monument and Palmer Lake have been given a pre-evacuation notice.

Here are higher quality versions of the photos. I'm relieved to say at least from these I was able to verify that one of my friends houses was still standing.

And now they've found a 2nd body at the same residence. Very sad.

55% contained as of this AM. Residents who live in the small towns off HWY 24 finally allowed to go home. Everyone getting pissed at media. Media acted like no one else was affected but Mountain Shadows. Even the crawlers on the shows didin't have the right info.

Hwy 24 was evacuated before the northern suburbs.

Even now the crawlers and media don't have much info on Mount St. Francis. It's a nursing home/convent.

Currently at 90% containment, they're expecting 100% by Friday. They got some rain up over the burn area last night which has helped immensely.

We have a small lightning caused Southwest of Canon City now. It is located on the West side of Tanner's Peak. The rain has helped. It would be nice to get a 1/4" to 1/2" every afternoon for awhile.
