The fire wiped out a lot of homes in the last few days...I believe the total is well over 300. For those who are interested, here's a photo album of before and after photos of the neighborhood that KadenJames was posting about: http://www.denverpost.com/wildfires/...mirrormajestic

This is so ridiculous, some people need to respect other peoples property, and for that matter, their life. I am so sorry to hear that, but i thought the news said the fires were dying down? Anyways, i hope everything turns out ok , and i will be following this thread to get updates :)

This morning, the fire is currently 15% contained. 346 homes have been destroyed, one body was found inside a crumbled building, and one person from that same household is missing. 10 People are unaccounted for altogether. 32,000 people are still evacuated. The fire has burned 16,750 acres and rising. President Obama is flying out here today to see the damage and to encourage our firefighters. Such a sad time, but it's amazing to see our community pulling together like it has. There was a mile long line of cars waiting to donate at the care and share center.



Here is a good link to see before and after shots of the neighborhoods destroyed- just scroll down the page.
