The exceptionally hot weather and dry conditions in Colorado have led to some devastating fires in the last month. At one point last week there were over 10 reported forest fires burning and the state has over half the nation’s forest fire equipment and personnel here fighting the blazes.
We’ve had several friends that have had to evacuate their homes in the Boulder and Colorado Springs areas. Thankfully everyone is safe and the homes have been spared until this point.
Over 250 homes were lost so far in the High Park fire near Fort Collins. Continue to pray for the firemen and women working hard to protect homes and buildings.
*Our friends in Boulder are being allowed to go back home, although the fire is still slowly growing but away from the city.
