Cheyenee Mtn Zoo is right on the mountain.

I bet if you look you can find some giraffes and elephants too.

Great, glad I'm not the only one to let them know. I wonder what, if any, role the FBI is playing in this considering their acknowledgement of the possibility of arson well ahead of the fires themselves.

Especially since it was put out by the Denver Division.

I realize those of you who are wishing for rain are doing so with the best intentions as it is a natural water sprinkler system and it sounds logical that wetting everything down will help. The problem is that in mountain regions like Colorado Springs rain also means heavy winds. Beings that the fire sits in a pass heavy winds from almost any direction would spread this thing like crazy. This is what happened yesterday and could very well happen later this afternoon and that's whats got me scared. What we need is calm weather with cooler temperatures, way cooler temperatures.

If you have a generator and a well this is what I did about 12 year ago
I set it all up and awaited for the fire to get close them I started it up
And drove away. The fire was a crone fire it burn alone the top first
It was moving East alone the highway at 3 miles hour When the OPP
Came to tell me to leave I had 15 minute to go.



Only had a small car so I only took the importance thing
Box of picture, a box of legal paper, box of ammo, and a my box of beer,
OPP officer said you don’t open any until you get to your new location.
And off he when I open one sat down and took one long last look.
Luck came my way that night wind change direction was ok

Forgot to add my insurance company just love my metal roof

Glad you brought this in. Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is an open air zoo and they are getting pummeled with smoke. Currently they are not in danger of fire but they have moved the animals indoors and are attempting to clean their air. Ash falling on the air conditioners and such is not helping the problem at all for the animals or the people city wide.

Edit to add: Current visibility due to smoke.

Hi all,

I just received an email form an old friend living in the Denver area and thought I would pass the info along:

It is just awful. We were down in the Springs on Saturday when that one started. The Flying W ranch is gone along with a ton of homes. The fire is up to Rampart Reservoir, where I used to fish all the time. It is heading for the AFA. So far, the Garden of the Gods is still intact. Only 5% containment.

The fire up by Ft. Collins is still going, only 55% containment. That one is about 85,000 acres. Burned close to 200 homes, I think.

There was a fire just west of us by Boulder yesterday but the smoke seemed low this morning, so it may be out soon.

I can hear the air tankers flying over head. I see and smell and feel most of the smoke from all the fires, at one point.

We have about 12 active fires or so going on in the state right now. It is really not good.



Best of luck to all the AST'ers in that area...

Yah and they are starting to worry about it jumping Hwy 24. It has once already but was quickly gotten under control, but if the winds get bad It wont be so easy.

If an ATS member needs a place to stay, including their pets, send a U2U. Family and friends have already been taken care of.

Have a couple rooms open as well as couches and plenty of land for the critters to run. U2U for more info.

Stay safe, and never underestimate a forest fire. If you are in an evac zone, EVACUATE. Things can be replaced, people cant.

Its important that the community comes together on these things and actually help one another. That is one of the ways beauty can show through the destruction.

West wind gusts are up to 25 mph. So the winds are picking up and worry of flare ups has begun.
