    Nearly 30,000 people who fled as the Waldo Canyon Fire ripped through their neighborhoods near Colorado Springs on Tuesday night were hoping for good news on Wednesday, but firefighters warned that the blaze is now near the Air Force Academy and that only a tiny portion had been contained.

    Additional mandatory evacuations were ordered in portions of the communities of Woodland Park and the local sheriff's department warned residents of the Holland Park and Pleasant Valley areas to be ready to evacuate.

    The fire, which started Saturday, has burned 15,324 acres near Colorado's second largest city, fire officials said this morning.

    I've been in and out of those areas over the years, and know people there. I cannot even imagine how horrible it is for them.
