Black Forest Fire Voluntary Evacuation Zone Established [UPDATED]

OVERHEARD: 5:09PM Mountain and the fire has doubled back and burning homes which were previously considered having passed out of danger.

UPDATE: This fire is zero percent contained. That's a zero followed by nothing.


UPDATE: The voluntary zone has been moved all the way north to Highway 105/Woodmoor Rd.


That's within spitting distance of Casa Verde. I'm going to go pack a few more things.


Bug Out

The El Paso County Sheriff has told residents between Briargate and Gleneagle they may evacuate if they desire, mostly due to smoke worries. That's the area bounded by Highway 83, Burgess, and Milam to the west; Old Ranch to the south; I-25 to the west; and North Gate/Old North Gate to the north.

That's a pretty big stretch of land, with houses, condos, and even a few ranches.
