Area of West Colorado Ave. at 31st? I did not hear that. I'm packing up now just in case.


That one was posted by The Gazette. @csgazette
I think it was reported as one of the reverse 911 calls.

If you are in the area & didn't get a call you might want to check and see if that info is accurate. So far KKTV has not listed or mentioned it.

Good luck and my thoughts are with you!!!

Isn't the main Lockheed Martin manufacturing facility (where nukes and other bombs are built) in Colorado Springs?



No, Chatfield Reservior area to the SW of Denver is where NORADs missle silos and nuke holding bays are housed.

However there are some seriously important command and control areas of our nuke defense system in Colorado Springs including NORAD itself.

I was out there April 20, 2011 and I hate to say it, but the trees were ate up and I thought to myself that only fire could stop the beetles. It is really a sad affair that so many are effected, but on the upside the forest will be reborn without the beetle problems!

It is the natural order of things. We know that if we build on the shore of a river that floods, or build in a forest that is dependant on forest fires that it is just a matter of time until disaster strikes.

This is true but not even a direct hit on NORAD with a nuclear weapon is a serious threat. There is no way NORAD is in danger, even if all of Cheyenne Mountain were ablaze.

I know a couple cheap ways to extinguish that fire within minutes. It's cool and awesome at the same time.

This is very freaky stuff, stay safe everyone!

This is like the Northern Alberta Slave Lake fire of 2011 that burned down half the town. It has only a population of roughly 7,000 though, so I sure hope nothing even close happens to Colorado Springs.

Everyone who is in the area please pack up and be ready to flee on a moments notice! Better to be prepared than caught unaware.

Man this is getting crazy...I spent most of my young life growing up in the Springs. To see places that I know burning like that is just so...surreal.

My parents told me that C-130s from Peterson (or Shriever?) have been dumping fire retardant around it on a regular basis, but at that size it seems to just go with the wind regardless. They also said that they had to stay inside the other day because of the amount of smoke blowing around (it's pretty much everywhere) Hopefully they'll get it under control soon, basically everyone I've ever known lives just south of there.

In 2006, NORAD chose to move the bulk of Cheyenne Mountain's operations to nearby Peterson Air Force Base in order to reduce duplication of function between the two sites. On July 28, 2006, NORAD renamed the facility as the Cheyenne Mountain Directorate, and placed the operations center on "warm stand-by," meaning that the facility will be maintained and ready for use on short notice as necessary, but not used on a daily basis.

I have been brought to tears by the vids, picts, and comments. I lived in Colorado (Aspen) years ago, and once you live anywhere in Colorado it's hard to leave because it is so crazy beautiful.

You guys take care, and remember to keep your vehicle full of gas, and check to see if your spare tire is in good condition.
