Mountain Residents Wait Out Wildfire

· Sep. 8, 2010, 12:00 pm

The fire burning in the mountains west of Boulder has forced around 3500 people to flee their homes. They're safe. But many don't yet know if their houses have survived. That's Bob Campbell's situation.  Seeking whatever information he can find, he's listening to the police scanner and calling friends.  Others are obsessively checking Twitter for updates. Campbell spoke to Colorado Public Radio's Zachary Barr, and he says, so far, the clues indicate his house may be gone.
