Stateside, Colorado- Fire

Driving into Colorado, my mom and I were wondering why we couldn't see the mountains. The entire ridge was covered in a haze. As we drove into the Springs, we saw a giant plume of smoke to the right of Pikes Peak.

The 'Waldo Canyon Fire' has already spread to over 2,000 acres and about 1,000 families have had to be evacuated from their homes.

 This was taken from the Air Force Academy at around 5:00 pm...

 this was about 5:30...

and this was at around 7:00. The wind has died down a lot, so the plume isn't as big, but the fire isn't under control yet.

Please be praying!
