I'd tell my relatives (who are with Sugarloaf VFD) to pay extra attention to a house with half a roof and cruiser bits scattered around, but from the sounds of it they are uber busy. They went to fight it, and then the evacuation order came for them, so they are trying to round up 3 kids, the pets, and my 94 year old grandmother.

Prayers aplenty...

Dan

I just went to the end of my driveway, and looking west you can clearly see the flames in the lowest part of the range (Boulder Canyon), but even worse is the flames climbin up to the north from there toward Lee Hill. There is no wind so the smoke has cleared out making it very easy to see.

I just went and watched this thing for about the past hour and a half, it appears the most intense stuff is heading towards lefthand canyon near north bolder.
