Courtesy of ScanElPaso County:

It's estimated at 50-100 acres now.

168.7250 Pike National Forest "Waldo Canyon IC"
163.7125 Logistics-National Common use
154.4300 Cascade Green Mountain Falls FPD
155.1000 Manitou Springs FD/Crystal Park FD

4940 El Paso County Blue Command - C2 (Pyramid IC)
4942 El Paso County Ruby Command - C4
4540 El Paso County DOT - Pikes Peak Highway Channel-1
4693 Colorado Springs Utilities - WRD
4536 Colorado Springs Parks & Recreation Channel-13

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.
