Yet another fire erupted today around 12:00 pm. This fire is in the Waldo Canyon area of El Paso and Teller Counties in Colorado. For those not familiar with the area that is just west of Colorado Springs. With the wind direction right now the fire is being blown back toward Colorado Springs and the Air Force Academy area. I attached a picture of the smoke plum from my roof. I live on the east side of town about 20 miles from all of this. The first picture is just the camera zoomed in and the second is from my spotting scope.
As of this post the fire was estimated at 1000 acres.
PLEASE keep all the people affected in your thoughts.
