Being my first year to live here gives my a understanding of the magnitude for the disaster of fires. The firefighters have to brave not only the fire, but the heat, climb mountains with heavy gear and doing all this in high altitude. My subdivision is not in danger, but we are full of evacuees . There are over 1700 homes evacuated and over 1600 that are on pre evacuation alert. It brings me alot of pride to see how the people of Durango have a sense of community in response to the #416Fire. The volunteering, donations and the opening of homes have been a phenomenal quality of our beloved people. The picture in the photo is a pic that I took yesterday morning from the mountain of Ft Lewis College. It is a picture of the valley of Downtown Durango.
