Fire Update Press Conference 8AM Wed morning

The Waldo Canyon fire has spread to 15,324 acres and had burned homes in Mountain Shadows area of Colorado Springs last night. Now there are 32,600 evacuated just in Colorado Springs alone.

NO LOSS OF LIFE- no injuries in fire fighters (1000 of them now) and no injuries in people.

It is 5% contained - some embers jumped over Rampart Range Reservoir a 1/2 mile and ignited on the other side (they put it out)

Air quality in CS is terrible and even people with normal lungs are affected.

Prayers appreciated. Weather cooling a bit from record highs of 101 in CS.

The Latest is that at least 100 homes were burned in Colorado Springs.
