Waldo Canyon fire update


There were clouds in the sky today and what appears to be rain near the mountains and the fire area.  The fire didn’t grow much last night which was good news.  Looking from the east side of Colorado Springs early today it seems much less intense. The smoke was only visible in a few areas. The fire is still at only 5% contained although things are going much better today.  Of course the winds could change it all again.

UPDATE: 347 residences destroyed. 10% containment.

UPDATE II: 25% containment, 2 dead.
