The End of the Beginning

June 15th, 2013 - 10:44 am

As of this morning, big chunks of evacuation and pre-evacuation have been lifted, including all of Elbert County and everything in El Paso County west of Highway 83. The total number of home lost is now 473, or more than one hundred more than were lost last year to Waldo.

But overall, yesterday was a very good day for fighting fires. Wish the crews equal luck today.

UPDATE: Sheriff Marketa tweets that the fire is now 45% contained.

MORE GOOD NEWS: Most of the area between County Line Rd and Walker Rd has been downgraded from Mandatary to Precautionary.

This morning was the first time since sunset on Monday that we could see Pikes Peak from here in Parker.
