10:30 pm Thurs 6/28/12 : According to LA Times: at least 346 Homes Destroyed
An unidentified person sent this firsthand eyeview in an email to my friend:
Colorado Springs is in a state of emergency.  There are now subdivisions
burning on the west side of the city.  Major landmarks are being destroyed.
There is chaos and traffic jams.  Thousands of people have evacuated or are
attempting to evacuate.  The Air Force Academy is being evacuated.  The fire
departments and fire fighters are unable to do anything about the runaway
firestorm.  Woodland Park and many surrounding towns and cities are in
jeopardy.  The fire is completely out of control.
Law Enforcement and fire departments are being called in from surrounding
cities such as Pueblo and from other places along the Front Range to assist.
A family member who works at a Wal-Mart is reporting panic buying.  It
appears if the food shelves and camping supplies are are being stripped
according to him.  Many people will have to stay in shelters, vehicles or
camp for the time being as many have nowhere to go.
We have family and friends in Colorado Springs who are on their way to our
home.  We have prepared for 3 years for such a catastrophic emergency so we
can accommodate them.  This is a wake up call to everyone to be prepared,
very prepared.
We are patrolling our part of the mountains for any sign of fires,
particularly for signs of arsonists as this appears to be the cause of all
the fires that have been started in Teller, Park and El Paso Counties.
The only thing we can do now is pray for the citizens of El Paso County,
Teller Counties and other areas along the front range.  There will be many
people who will need our help soon.  This is truly a catastrophe unfolding
by the minute.
