#WaldoCanyonFire : Visiting Pike National Forest

July 2, 2012

The Waldo Canyon Fire continues to burn in areas near Colorado Springs. As of Sunday evening, the blaze was 55% contained, but burned nearly 18,000 acres, including almost 350 homes in the city, with two fatalities. Late last week, KRCC’s Andrea Chalfin donned flame resistant clothing and a hard hat to join a media group allowed to visit burned areas of the Pike National Forest. She has this collection of sound and images from the journey.
