Waldo Canyon Fire – Back to Normal?

Things are starting to get back to normal again, for the most part. The fire is at 55% containment and 17,827 acres burned. The total cost of the fire is $11.1 million. 3,000 people are still evacuated from their homes and 346 homes have been completely destroyed in Colorado Springs. Even in Monument, some 13 miles from the fire, there are reminders of the steps taken to “mitigate” the risks to various structures. These trees have been closely protected for years. However, because of the possible risk from the fire, it was decided that they would have to be removed.
