Not hearing anything yet on 464.2750 146.2 Security, KNCQ356 Cedar Hts Community Association, but they are evacuating. Eagle Lake may be evacuated soon.

US Forestry requested State Patrol close one lane of U.S. 24 westbound. Nothing mentioned for eastbound yet.

It's difficult to keep up with all the campgrounds and roads being evacuated and closed.

By the looks of it, its growing rapidly. Took these right out my front door in the Briargate aera of colo spgs. The plume has almost doubled since.
Cascade, Chipita Park, and Green Mountain Falls are under voluntary evacuation.
