Many of you have asked for an update on the status of the fires here in Colorado Springs and the status of the Taylors’ and Storers’ homes.
The fires have continued to burn and have spread to new areas. In light of this, neighborhoods to the north and to the west of Colorado Springs were evacuated today. The air in many parts of the city is very thick with the smoke from the fire and the police have set up roadblocks in many parts of the city to keep people out of dangerous fire areas.
The Taylors and the Storers both live in the areas where entry is restricted, as a result no one has been able to check on their homes in person. The following link is a map that gives a good idea of the magnitude of both the fire and the evacuation areas http://www3.gazette.com/fire/.
We ask for your continued prayer for the Taylors and Storers as well as all affected by this terrible fire. We are blessed that both families are physically safe.
