Inaccurate, just portions of the AFA so far.

Mandantory Evacuation of the south portion of the Air Force Academy: North Boundary is Pine Dr. South Boundary is the USAFA Boundary, West Boundary is the USAFA boundary, East boundary is the Tri Intersection

Completely nothing related or important or related. We have 10's of homes currently burning and FF's in extreme danger no reason to post this.

At the 2000 hrs news conference a question was specifically asked,'this morning you said it was 4000 acres, then this afternoon you said it was 14,000, now were hearing 32,000 is this true?' Geri, the FS spokesperson said yes, 32,000. Unless I completely heard it wrong. Which is always possible....
