Fires again in Colorado

Our hearts are breaking as once again we have major fires in our state.
Right now we have 3 major fires burning.

On Face Book today. 
Royal Gorge, outside of Canon City happened near the Royal Gorge Bridge, all the buildings are gone connected with Royal Gorge park area, the bridge sustained some damage but is in tact.  This fire is 40% contained, with 3,126 acres so far.
We have family near the Black Forest fire, our nephew and wife Doug and Jennifer.  They are 6 miles SE of the fire now.  Jennifer's cousin has lost her home. They were able to move farm animals and get a few possessions out ahead of the fire.
Please keep our precious state in your prayer!
Ma and Pa
