Please keep us up to date on your situation!
Worried about you!!!
We're ok. We're about 10 miles South of where the evacuations are. The fire is moving East/West and is in a very densely wooded area - we are in the city outside of the Black Forest. Last I heard, 92 homes were burned down - so sad. A lot of animals are in that area (horses, alpacas, etc.) and it seems like they've all been moved safely and no reports of any human injuries or fatalities.
There's a second big fire in my hometown about an hour West of here. It's close to the Royal Gorge Bridge - the world's highest suspension bridge. It's a famous landmark and a big source of tourism. Last I heard, 32 boards of the bridge have burned and 20 structures around the park. So heartbreaking!!
