In that clip you can see a stable across the road. There were two horses there, and somebody let them out of the stalls. Then two men came running in to the house and a sheriff's car stopped nearby, but if anybody knows whether the horses were saved, I haven't heard yet.
It's now about 8:30 AM amd I just heard the morning briefing. The fire has ballooned overnight from 6200 acres to over 15,000 acres! 32,000 people total have been evacuated -- 26,000 just yesterday afternoon and evening. Up to yesterday, no structures had burned; now scores have burned (they don't know how many yet), but fortunately nobody, not even firefighters, have been injured or killed. Today a weak cold front is supposed to go through (reducing the temperature from yesterday's all-time record of 101 degrees down to 96! Some cold front!) It may also produce more thunderstorms. Stay tuned as to what that might cause in the way of wind shifts.
The crux of this fire is that over the years Colorado Springs has expanded heavily into that wildland interface. These subdivisions are right against the flanks of the Rampart Range, which runs north-south from Colorado Springs up toward Denver. Everybody wants to live in forested, rugged land, with the wildlife around -- peaceful and beautiful -- and they build expensive houses and gated communities. Personally, I wouldn't live in that kind of environment! Give me a nice, civilized, established city neighborhood with streets laid out in the classic grid pattern so you aren't limited to two or three arterial access roads as is the case with these areas that are burning. I live in the central city, east but not way east. I think I'm safe. The fires would have to move south, jump the interstate and Monument Creek, and just roar on through. Nevertheless, I'm a little nervous. I haven't really gotten any possessions together, but I'm sure going to keep my flash drive back-up updated. The contents of my computer is the only thing I would really mind losing!
