I saw a big one in the background of colo springs as I was driving back to Pueblo from Denver... Also a pretty big accident on the I 25N where a truck flipped on its side.... whole side was shutdown.

The Black Forest fire was reported to have started next the road... If you smoke PLEASE don't throw your cigarette out the window!! What i wanna know is why isn't there a faster air response?? On a day like this as soon as smoke is seen, air support should be in the air! Regardless of whether its a state or federal plane. Didn't we learn anything last year? Enough with the politics and pride...ask for the help and get the resources in play!

Ive heard they flew in a tanker from new Mexico. Because ours are grounded from budget cuts. Pathetic. And there was a house fire sunday night in black forest that I believe caused it.

Politicians have the budget to ensure they keep all their personal benefits, health care and free perks even after they get voted out of office! The Governor has the budget to pardon a convicted killer, keeping him alive and provide him:food and healthcare, in our prisons...but we don't have the money to get aircraft up in the air when our own community is threatened... WTH is wrong with this picture?! Give it a couple ours and the politicians will be out here making sure they get their TV time...
