Colorado Wildfire of 'Epic Proportions' Displaces 32,000; Tests Firefighters By Ed Payne CNN updated 7:37 AM EDT, Wed June 27, 2012 http://www.cnn.com/2012/06/27/us/western-wildfires/index.html . .(CNN) -- Firefighters again will battle inferno-like conditions on Wednesday as they try to tame an explosive wildfire that has already chased some 32,000 residents from their homes near Colorado Springs, Colorado.
."This is a firestorm of epic proportions," Richard Brown, the Colorado Springs Fire chief, said late Tuesday. Winds gusting to 65 mph through mountain canyons blew the wildfire through containment lines into northwest Colorado Springs on Tuesday afternoon.
.Gov. John Hickenlooper surveyed the Waldo Canyon Fire, telling reporters it was a difficult sight to see.
."There were people's home's burned to the ground. It was surreal," he said late Tuesday night. "There's no question, it's serious. It's as serious as it gets."
.The 6,200-acre fire remained only 5% contained. Officials labeled it as exhibiting "extreme fire behavior."
.Becky Shormann has nervously listened to news reports since Saturday, the day the fire started prompting her to evacuate the area with her husband.
. She hoped her home would be spared. .The family managed to take some sentimental items with them when they left, but still had to leave behind a boat, a pair of ATVs, a China cabinet and an antique doll collection.
. snip .Schormann told CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" that flames came to within 20 feet of their home but were beaten back.
"Our volunteer fire department is just awesome," she said. . snip .The flames from the same wildfire also are dangerously close to the U.S. Air Force Academy campus. An evacuation order has been issued for about 700 residents in its Pine Valley Housing and 1,400 in Douglass Valley Housing, said public affairs officer John Van Winkle.
.The academy's powered flight, glider and parachuting operations have been called off since Saturday so that the U.S. Forest Service could use runways for helicopters used to fight fires along Colorado's Front Range, Van Winkle said.
. The academy's Class of 2016, all 1,045 cadets, will arrive Thursday. ."The fire conditions could not be worse," said Anne Rys-Sikora, spokeswoman for a multi-agency fire response team. "It is like a convection oven out there."
