Big news, the fire is through the last canyon and is beginning to come down the side of the mountain towards town. The wind shifted and my whole city is completely engulfed in smoke, it's difficult to drive in. Ash is falling like snow and gets in everyone's eyes, my sister and her boyfriend had to evacuate. There's people spraying their roofs with water to keep embers from landing and igniting. I would really appreciate everyone's prayers and good wishes, our amazing firemen have kept the fire away from burning any structure except for one. Just reported another new fire has been started a couple hours southwest of here. A lot of people are really panicking.

Just got news that there are now several houses on fire, as well as our beloved Flying W Ranch. They're beginning to evacuate downtown. Just want to cry right now. =(

Yeah. You know things are bad when your news caster starts to cry. :'( he has friends that built the house they live in, and it's probably on fire. He just lost it on the air. :( my sister is stuck in the evacuated area because of traffic. Everyone is trying to run out at the same time.

Yeah I was talking to my friend about this, he is from Boulder, but he is going to college after summer and the fire is like right next to his college town, and it just so happens his sister lives in the town.

I will keep you guys in my prayers.p

That is so sad! It is sad to know that someone's house and belongings are completely gone to a natural disaster, its heart breaking to know someone is lighting the fires on purpose. With the amount of land already burned and the fires started, that guy or people won't like the legal system...

Oh darn couldn't edit... Kaden I saw in numerous places that they don't know what caused the fire, do they now know or what? The videos were a like a week old, so I wasn't sure.
