Re: Colorado wildfires 2013: Thousands evacuate as fast-moving fires rage
Sorry for no links at this time, taking this off the local KMGH news station in Denver.

There was also little to no humidity. Tv stations were saying only 3-5% humidity.

Royal Gorge fire = 3,800 acres (this was the total given last night, waiting on an update for new numbers). Burned 3 structures on either side of the bridge. Bridge at this point is undamaged. For those who have never been there, the part of the bridge that you walk across is made from wooden slats.

The Territorial Prison on the west side of Canyon City had 881 inmates evacuated over to another facility on the east site that was vacate.

The Black Forest fire is north of Colorado Springs and very near the area burned in the Waldo Canyon fire of last year. 7,800 - 8000 acres have burned. Last night 10-12 homes were burned or damaged. I missed the info on this, will update when the noon news comes on if anyone interested.

Big Meadows Fire is on the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park which is west of Estes Park. While this is continuing to grow, there are not any structures to worry about. Last night 300-400 acres. Waiting on news conf for updates.

Temps are 10-15 degrees cooler than yesterday with highs in the low to mid 90's today instead of 100!! Winds have bee calmer this morning but will pick up as things continue to heat up thru the afternoon. Black Forest fire is the only area under a red flag warning due to gusting dry winds. There is a possibility later that some storms could pop up in the same are, little chance of rain but lightning is possible.

Black Forest = evacuation area about 24,000 acres - 2,600 homes are in that area. One person said as they were leaving, that dozens of homes were burning.

Live reporting is showing a huge smoke plume that is white and looks like a huge thunder storm. Winds are kicking up and the fire looks like it is growing again.

There are 5 fires, two which are small. Wildfire Smoke Health Advisory in effect and those who have health problems, young children and the elderly should limit time outside as much as possible.

They are worried that evey one may not have gotten out in time.
As to reports of injuries or deaths, Maketa said he had no definitive information but he fears the worst.

"We had people refusing to leave," Maketa said. "We had people walking out at 2 in the morning. We had people who refused to evacuate. My worst fear is people took a chance and lost their life."

Odd that the two most anti gun liberal states....

Colorado and California.....have the most wildfires.
 Quoting: FatalW1shes


Colorado is no where near being one of the two most anti gun liberal states. Don't need a permit to purchase, no registration and no ridiculous type bans. Sorry but the BS magazine capacity limit doesn't jump Colorado to the top of the list.

 Quoting: Corn Dog


Another thing, kids were at home and parents were at work. No one is saying these were killed only that they are trying to get kids with parents. From the morning report there was real panic and concern from parents who couldn't find their children. I can only only image a teenager babysitting their younger siblings and a wildfire heading their way.

Black Hawk and Chinook helicopters dropping water. A couple of C130 airplanes will be dropping more huge water drops again today. Winds are kicking up and they fear air support will be grounded.

 Quoting: whiteangel


I'm in Denver watching 9 news. They just said 8000 acres with no containment. Now they're worried the winds could switch directions and turn the fire back on itself, towards houses that were spared first time through. Terrible man I love Black Forest.

I can't believe one almost got Royal Gorge. Looks like it burned right up to the bridge.

Fire bans are going up all over the state, latest are:
Boulder County
Clear Creek
Jefferson
Douglas
Chatfield State Park
Colorado Springs - of course
Lone Tree
Golden
Parker

This means no open fires, grill cannot have open flames. Home fire pits must be covered at all times.
