The fire was only on the northwest side of town that came over the ridge on Tuesday as well as a portion of small mountain towns west in the mountains.  They have since either been put out or pushed back into the canyon.  Completely devastating for the parts of town that the fire reached but the rest of town is not at risk (for this fire at least).  The west side is still at risk but the fire is no longer buring in town.  Over 300 homes have been lost (in a matter of 2 hours when the fire went over the ridge) and they were forced to leave quickly.  So incredibly sad. The fire is still very much burning forest ground but not in the city.  Luckily my Fiance and I live on the east side of town but it’s been terrible watching it from our porch.  The smoke finally died down today but the whole city smells like a campfire.  Im not fully aware of the condition regarding the other fires around the state as our local news has really only been featuring the fire here.

Thanks for your thoughts!!!  I know if there are any bees that were directly affected by it, they will greatly appreciate any encouragement.

🙂 thanks for the thoughts.  Fiance and I live 20 minutes south of the Waldo Canyon fire(my home luckly should stay safe), there are a lot of fires out here 🙁  A few of my friends have been evacuated and one has already lost their home.  Thank you for the prayers and I just want to say sorry to anyone who’s life or wedding has been affected by the fires. Sadly one of the places I was thinking about having my wedding has burned to ground but hopefully it will be re-built by the time my wedding comes around.  Stay safe Colorado bees!!!

I have a friend in CO, and I don’t follow the news so I was unaware there was a fire. Is it near Denver?

@Mrs. Bear Cheese Pie:  Denver is still in the clear for now, it is kind of stuck in the middle of a couple of fires, but is pretty far from all of them

Yea I am in Denver and we haven’t had any problems.  We can see the cloudly mountains from the window.  A lot of family has called as well but in Denver we are 80 miles from both fires.  The closest one to us is Boulder and even that is 36 miles away.  We are doing okay for now.  I hope the rest of the state of okay.
