Defensible space

A good chunk of Colorado Springs is burning out of control tonight due to a wildfire that crossed over from the forest into residential areas.

I took this picture of one of my former houses a couple of years ago:

Brush

Notice how the brush and trees are right next to the structure.

It is in the path of these fires, and I fear it will be gone tomorrow.

This is not an easy night.

If you live in woodland areas, please, please, please... learn about defensible space. Then act.

Thank you.
