I saw that on the page and thought that was odd at first but i guess Arvada can cover WR for this.

Interesting to see maybe the two busiest engines in the state working together. How are the MA companies getting toned out?

Pretty much all of the Metro Denver departments sent equipment. I know West Metro and Golden did. The mutual aid call went out around 5 or 6 last night.

I wonder which TFR will take precedence?

Will Air Attack have to suspend air ops firefighting because all aircraft are grounded near POTUS except Marine 1 ?

I bet Air Attack freq might have some choice words about the interruption. Good listening at that time.

From reports, looks like the Fire on USAFA property won't be contained or stopped. Just too many burning embers.... It is not looking good for the front range...

The only good thing that is coming out of this is that it will be a long time before this happens again... All of that old dead fuel to burn. It will finally be thinned out.

I remember walking to Stanley Resevoir from the USAF Academy, about a 2 hour hike back the trails back when I was stationed there. Gorgeous country back there.

I'm a R2 FS employee living just outside the Academy... visibility is bad right now, hoping the thunderclouds produce more rain than lightning.

Denver and Aurora put out an all-call on the air this morning for those willing to stay tomorrow and work OT in Colorado Springs.

Looks like the winds are doing a repeat of yesterday based on the live feed off thedenverchanel.com

Downslope, grounded aircraft, looks like 30mph sustained wind, not good.

Not sure if anyone noticed, but I'm hearing fireground traffic at this fire from various Denver FD units including "Denver Command" and E8.
8Call90 (851.0125 156.7PL) right now...
