Email News Alerts

Thousands of residents were forced to flee from Colorado last week as raging fires tore through the state, leaving homes, business and churches burned to the ground.


Mike Sundseth, former Alexandria resident, was one of these evacuees.

The Waldo Canyon Fire has scorched 28 square miles, killed two and burned 346 homes in just a little over a week. Fortunately, the Sundseth home in Colorado Springs was not burned down.
