Exclamation Waldo canyon and High Park fire

I just want to let people who are or have been evacuated in these fires that many people are praying for you and your families. Everything is okay in the end if its not okay its not the end:)

For those of you who dont live in Colorado and dont know too much about these fires here is some information.. I dont know to much about the Waldo Canyon fire as i dont live by there but its around 5,000 acres with 5 % containment.

The High Park fire has been going on since the 9th of this month. I have been tracking it down on my calander and so far the fire has completely demolished 248 homes and is nearly 90,000 acres with less then half containment.This fire is the worst fire in colorado history with destruction wise not size yett.. This fire is very huge and very scary.. for people that want a size ratio it was 63 square miles when it was around 50,000 arces so imagine now almost twice that. I think anyways.. For people that have lost homes I hope and i am praying for you everyday! If you need help I can try to help.. I mean im only 15 so im not really sure what i can do other than pray.. I can do that for you! Im so very sorry that this fire has destroyed homes, everything happens for a reason.. maybe its for the best.:) IM PRAYING FOR YOU AND SO ARE MANY MANY OTHER PEOPLE!:))))

If you want to help, I believe The Ranch is still in need of volunteers to clean stalls for evacuated animals from the High Park fire (Budweiser Ranch is the large animal evacuation place).

I have the contents of my friend's home in my basement, still no word on if his house is still standing or not. I can see the flames at night from my house and I'm a good 30 miles away. Really wish we could get some rain.

The fire is now out of control. We've lost our Flying W Ranch and multiple homes. Thousands are searching for somewhere to go. Please keep us in your prayers.

Mrs. Face has lots of relatives in Colorado Springs, and we go there almost every year, so we are monitoring the situation pretty closely. They have some pretty bad fires periodically up there, but this one is really scary because it is beginning to actually encroach on the city suburbs.

Good luck to everyone up there and don't mess around taking chances with this thing...
