    In Focus: The Terrifying, ‘Epic’ Wildfire in Colorado

    Colorado Springs Fire Chief Rich Brown described the blaze as “a fire of epic proportions,” as tens of thousands of Colorado residents and tourists have been evacuated ahead of the growing, potentially disastrous Waldo Canyon fire. This fire joins several others across the state, including the High Park fire, which has consumed nearly 90,000 acres since June 9. While no reports of deaths or injuries have surfaced, hundreds of homes have been destroyed, with many more threatened. Fire crews are doing their best to contain the fires and save what homes they can, as authorities urged residents to flee affected areas.

    My heart goes out to (hell, it never really left) Colorado.
