In reply to: off topic on wildfires... feelin sad posted by Alissa on June 24, 2002 at 15:01:54:The fire SW of Denver has been 60-70% contained. It erupted a bit
about a week back and took out a few more homes, but some of the
evacuees who have been living in hotels for 2 weeks are going home,
to houses that were saved! Thanks to all the firefighters (HI Devon!)
who have cut trees, set backfires and cleared bushes. What hot and
dirty work! I will not say the fire is no longer a threat, but it is
definitely looking better around here. My condolences to AZ for the
loss of all the land there. I've been to that area of the state many
times, and I'm sad to think that it will take decades to come back.
Wishing for more rain..
