In a -- that's still said to be out of control the black forest fires one of several.
On fire across the state of Colorado now and while more homes could be destroyed and areas too hot to access.
Some people were forced from their own homes saying that they're just happy to be alive.
There are some things you just need to live within its -- lot better stay calm and you can react better.
Obviously if you live in monument Colorado they did not have a lot of success overnight what happened there at least -- Hi bill though they did not have a lot of success and they -- right now at 0% containment still for a fire that started two days ago today authorities are going door to door in some of these neighborhoods that.
Are in pre evacuation order.
Emphasizing to folks that they need to be ready have their valuables ready to go at a moment's notice because things change here.
So quickly in that has what's been going on now we got an update from the sheriff here.
Who did say that is incredibly dangerous in that burn zone because of the winds here's the sheriff.
We're talking about a very hot area.
And some in some cases were talking two story homes.
That have been affected by the fire they have collapsed down and then there's multiple layers of flammable material.

That have been pushing the flames in a couple of different directions which makes it particularly difficult and dangerous as you know about that what what's the forecast for today were the prospects this year.
Not much better in fact air quality is actually adding to that problem they're expecting 1995.
I had some degree temperatures to -- more high winds fifty degrees sit there expecting to evacuate more people there expecting the firefight to become more dangerous -- all the more difficult they're thinking is -- could spread.
By at least 3000.
More acres we are already 8500 acres.
For the black forest fire alone so an additional 3000 acres before this is all said and done bill that is huge -- -- thanks good luck today they're gonna need.
