Out of Danger (Colorado Springs Fire Update)

The fire in Colorado Springs is far from put-out, but the winds have died down and I don’t believe any more structures are in danger.

Over 300 homes were burned, including the home of one family that we know. They were out of town and didn’t have a chance to pack a thing or get their car out of the garage. We are praying for them.

The campus that is one of our homes was also spared. The fire came within about two miles, but never got closer. The residents (our friends!) are allowed to return in the morning, although they are still on evacuation notice in case the fire would change direction again. It is probably super smoky and covered in ash, but it’s standing and we are so thankful.

You can check out some crazy before and after photos of some housing areas that were affected here.
And then, as one friend affected by all this reminded… squeeze your loved ones a little tighter today… they are what is important.
