sumpinaintright: Not saying it was arson, but it's about the only thing it could have been.



Campers. Smokers. Power lines. Car fire. House fire. Elk that have learned to use flint and steel. Meteorite. Kids with matches. Kids with a magnifying glass. Spontaneous human combustion. Fireworks. Spontaneous squirrel combustion. Homemade rocket. Embers from a chimney. An angry bear with a gas can, a lighter, and a political cause. Powertool malfunction. ATV fire. Drunk Texans blowing-off steam. Dragging trailer chains making sparks. Gods fighting. Fire ants finally living up to the hype. Badgers rioting over the stagnation of the middle-class. An arsonist who changed his mind, but then tripped and started the fire by accident. I could go on.

SpaceBison: vegaswench: melkson: Eatin' Queer Fetuses for Jesus: melkson: They've evacuated to the north and west of me, i'm 4 blocks from the mandatory areas. Got my stuff packed, but there is no way i'd be able to move my pets :(
I don't think I want to go without them.

Why can't you move your pets? I'm in Douglas County if you need help. Email in profile.

Well, we have 4 lizards, 2 tanks of feeder mice, and an elderly ferret. 2 of the lizards are 4+ feet long, one bites (nile monitor). I guess we could put the big ones in pillowcases, and move the smaller 2 in a 10gal tank. Mice are just lizard food, but the ferret Spot would need special care. Thank you very much for the offer, and if need arises I may contact ya.

You'd be willing to risk your life for four lizards and a ferret? I have two cats, and, while I love them, if it were a question of me or them, well, I can get more cats.

Stay safe and get out.

The kids too. You can always just make more babies.


Why bother? Just cash the Gerber life insurance check and get some sleep for a change!

Huck And Molly Ziegler: Is there a political party or economic philosophy we can blame this on, or is it just an old-fashioned unfortunate event that must be coped with?

Prayers & supportive thoughts go out to those who've lost everything.


Obviously, the only recourse is to cut the state's fire fighting budget by 40 percent, turn down any additional federal support, and then have a three day pray off in Denver for rain. And then blame Obama.

Kymry: I hope it burns down Focus on the Family.

Please, if there is a God, he needs to smite that place hard.

The only way that'd work is if Dobson and his lieutenants was locked inside it as it was burning.

Stay safe CO farkers. If (IF) you have time, try to get a video of your house, inside and out, for insurance purposes. Make it as detailed as possible, and get everything down to the titles of your DVD's if you can. It will make the insurance claims process that much easier and could increase the amount of cash you get back if you can prove the existence of things that would have otherwise burned to nothing.

Good luck.

They are, but if you're in CO please don't use them at the moment.

Retractable Weeners: From Craigslist: Link

I was on Rampart Range Road and saw the Fire basically when it started. I have video and pictures and believe I know who started the fire. I have left 4 messages with the tip line and have not received a call back. The perpetraitors are probably in another state by now and as time passes crucial evidence is being lost! Somebody needs to contact me asap. I may go to the Television stations tomorrow. What a shame!


You MAY go to the TV stations? You haven't received a callback?? What kind of gutless POS are you if you feel you have genuinely credible information to share with authorities??? You blame others for time being lost? What a spineless tool!Nut up, jagoff!

radarlove: And you know what? fark Colorado. Let it burn. Colorado Springs plays host to the most evil and diabolical "Christian" organizations imaginable, and the voters of Fort Collins cost me my business, bankrupted my wife and I, drove us homeless and insane, and WORST OF ALL condemned my terminally ill customers and clients to lives rich with suffering with little hope of relief.

As far as I'm concerned, this is Divine Wrath, and they can eat it by the motherfarking spoonful. Whole state is full of two-faced fakes who only care about compassion and charity when they can get something out of it.


Get a job, hippie
