i can see the flames from my driveway in the distance


The Waldo Canyon Fire is burning just a few miles from where I live. I haven’t been evacuated as the fire isn’t heading my direction, but the custom-built childhood home that I grew up in and the surrounding neighborhood has almost certainly burned to the ground. 32,000 people have been evacuated, and thousands more have gotten the pre-evacuation notice as the fire continues to burn out of control. Please send thoughts and prayers (or supplies to the shelters, if you live nearby) for the evacuees and the fire fighters who are working round the clock to get the fire contained.
