How many of you here have heard about the wild fires burning in Colorado? I am sure everyone has since it has been on the news lately. Has this event made national and/or international news? The last I heard, there are eight wild fires burning in this state right now. My family and I are safe and we are far away from the fires. I am still able to see the smoke when the wind blows it down toward the city from the High Park and Fort Collins area.

I've seen them on our local news but I believe it has made the National news, as well. Stay safe!!

I was wondering if it made just national or both national and international news. I checked one of the web sites with up-to-date information about the fires and the High Park fire is 100% cnotained as of yesterday. I am not sure about the other ones.

Hi Kerry78. I am safe and well. I am far away from where the fires are burning. They have been covering the fires on all of the local news stations here. The High Park fire is now 100% contained and I am not sure about the one burning in Colorado Springs. I think that one is still burning. I have heard that they think the fires will continue burning into the autumn months here. I hope we get rain, without the storms, that will help to cool it down and to minimize the fire danger, even, possibly, help to put these fires out.

I have actually heard the opposite on the news. People have been going to the movies and I have been hearing it's like their way of saying they are not going to let this one guy terrify them and prevent them from having a good time at the movies.
In regards to the wild fires burning, the one in HIgh Park is still burning. While it is 100% contained, I have heard that that fire may continue burning into the autumn months or until it gets cold and starts snowing. I don't know which fires are still burning in the state.
