Just getting a thread started for Rebel check-in so our Legion brothers and sisters can see our status. I don't think we have any rebels/501st in the Black Forest area, but Mountain Base is checking in.

We're under extreme fire danger in El Paso county, Colorado. A few homes have so far been lost in Black Forest. Currently, Colorado Springs, Monument, Palmer Lake, those areas are not in danger.

We have 501st members in Black Forest and are unaffected. We also have 501st members in Canon City, close to the Royal Gorge fire. They are unaffected as well.

So far so good on our members.

Evacuation areas are expanding as the fires grow, but members are still okay.

We have a 501st member whose home is getting closer to being under pre-evac. His family is ready to leave. My dad's home is now falling under pre-evac, and he's preparing to leave.

Rebel members are still accounted for. Some of our 501st members have family/friends who have lost their homes.

Evacuations are expanding and Interstate 25 is facing lane restrictions through the city to help ease congestion.

The 5pm press briefing did announce 2 fatalities. Based on the scene and location of the bodies, it appears they were in the middle of trying to evacuate.

Not at all Jeff.

I also want to say that honorary member and neighbor, Kevin J. Anderson, is keeping us updated on his status too. He lives in the Monument area. He and Rebecca have been preparing to evacuate. He's been posting on his Twitter account @TheKJA.

BLACK FOREST FIRE STATS: • 95% contained • 2 deaths • Acres burned: 14,280 • Homes lost: 509 • Cost: $8.5M

Evacuations are being lifted. While the Colorado Springs and Black Forest areas are fine, more fires are springing up all over the state.

All members remain accounted for!
