Colorado is on fire! This hot, dry June has brought an unprecedented number of wildfires to our front range. Currently, approximately 135,000 acres are burning from a combined 6 active fires!! The last few record setting days of heat have only increased the danger. Yesterday afternoon one of the fires took a turn for the worse and jumped a road an with the help of 65 mile per hour winds climbed up a canyon wall and into subdivisions quickly burning several homes. Many people were at work when this happened and didn't even have a chance to collect belongings. So far there are no reports of deaths caused by this fire, I only pray it remains as such. It's a scary situation and I can't even imagine the devastation of the families affected.

My prayers go out to them and to all the brave firefighters that are risking their lives in fighting these flames.
