5:32PM: Looks like we’re good for tonight — Marketa isn’t even talking about our area. The line has held at Highway 83, and things are looking good in the corridor between Hodgen and Shoup.
It’s going to be a while before this thing is fully contained, much less extinguished. But it looks for now like the biggest threat has passed.
So if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go wipe my nose and get quietly drunk.
5:11PM: Per El Paso County Sheriff Marketa, two bodies have been found and positively ID’d, but their identities have not yet been released.
