Our customers are #1
More bad news has been released.
They have a confirmed death of a homeowner, and the second occupant from that address is unaccounted for. Our condolences go out to that family for thier terrible loss.
They have containment at 15% now, 16,750 acres have burned.
Last night and this morning they have lifted evacuation orders on the US Air Force Academy housing and some of the residential areas just west of I-25.
They now have 1,118 Fire Fighters, 8 helicopters, 11 bulldozers, 76 fire engines and up to 8 aircraft engaged fighting this fire.
They have announced that today the USAF will bring in more MAAF equipped aircraft.
Aerial support will be utilized today to aid firefighters.
To date 14,154 gallons of retardant and 384,205 gallons of water have been dropped on the Waldo Canyon Fire.
APEX is still open for business!
We are still in a pre-evacuation order area.
Bulldozers will be used to construct contingency lines along Mount Herman Road.
That is to our south and will be a big help in stemming the northern progress of this fire.
It is our hope that no more people loose their lives and homes in this fire.
That is what I know this morning.
