Colorado Springs Waldo Canyon Fire

I live in Colorado Springs, CO where we have recently been through extreme wild fires.  364 houses have burned, 34 streets gone. 32,000 people evacuated from their homes.  I was not one because I live on the east side of town.  Though every time I stepped out the door I would smell smoke. I thought I would share some of the pictures I took.  You can go onto the news sites to see better pictures.  I just hope all the families who lost homes find peace.  These are in order from day 1 to day 3 (the fire is still burning).

If you can do anything to help the families who lost homes go to the Red Cross' website to find out how.


  1. Oh man. I live in north Denver and my sister is down there by you. It's been so scary. I'm glad you are safe.


  2. I didn't realize you lived in CO. My parents grew up there. My mom actually grew up right in CO Springs. My grandfather still lives there. I'm thinking of you guys!

  3. So glad that you're safe! We're on the east side of town, too. It was really scary there for a little while no matter what part of town you were in, though. So grateful for the firefighters who saved so many homes.
