It seems the fire has managed to make its way into a subdivision on the West side of town.

Please pray for rain!
Please pray for the firefighters!
Please pray no human life is lost!

Definitey sending prayers for all involved homeowners and firefighters. Hope you and David are ok, let me know if you need anything my daughter is down in the springs as well on a church mission trip this week. We also had one start up here in Boulder by Gross Reservoir today I can see the massive plume from the house. The slurry bombers up on the North side are based out of Rky Mnt Regional and they rolling over th house it seems like every 30 minutes. We need rain in the worst way. Take care.

Yes Boulder is under pre-evac orders!

We are fine, far enough away from the fire.

The Flying W Ranch burned down - its is a historical site, been part of the community sine 1953. Sad day today.

I wish we could send you some of our rain. Thinking good thoughts for cooler, less windy and more moisture.

Right now the AFA is not burning, but the subdivisions north of them is. I'm pretty sure they will be safe. The live coverage is shocking....houses just burning...left and right. Ugh.

this has been an ugly fire season. Our many thanks go to the brave men and women who are fighting multiple fires, the police and military police, the military fire fighters who have also been wonderful. I don't know how we'd survive without all of them. Prayers sent.

OMG, prayers sent. That is terrible. The rain seems to go to certain areas this year and others not a drop.

Wow, I can't imagine going through fire like that. Prayers sent.....
Looks like there are quite a few homes in the area below Flying W Ranch. Centennial Blvd and W Woodman area look to be in big trouble.

With words like "epic' and "long way to go" being used this morning, I really feel bad for the folks who live in the evacuation area show on this map.

It wasn't too long ago that Texas had those huge fires. God be with all of you.
