    Keep safe everyone!!

  2. Thanks to the 1,119 Firepersons fighting protecting and defending!

  3. Thats another one for apocalypse bingo

  4. I feel for these people, I live in Truckee ca and we had the smoke and fires where you could see the smoke flowing down the street. May a huge snow/rain storm descend on this area.

  5. Too bad they dont take care of their forests. Ive owned my ranch for over 15 years never has happened. I do burns every year so this doesnt happen

    • What state do you live in ? You have no clue!

    • We take PLENTY care of our forests.

    • It’s primarily burning federal land. So, who is in charge of taking care of it?

      75% of Colorado forested land is owned by the US government: USFS, BLM, NPS. ALL of these fires in Colorado this year started on federal land. Take it up with them! And I’ll wager your “ranch” isn’t at an altitude of 7,000 to 11,000 feet elevation of extremely rugged and inaccessible terrain. Offer us your empathy, or STFU!

    I absolutely love Colorado and I hope nothing but the best for the residents and friends I have loving there. I also hope the wildlife stays safe, it’s such a gorgeous state

  9. I live in N. Calif. and this is the first morning I woke up without coughing since August after living in smoke for nearly 2 months.

      If you cough due to bad air, it is because your lungs are terminally being scarred by fine particles and chemicals from burnt things.

      I’m pretty sure you have an allergy or something. The air quality has been not coughing bad in the Bay Area for several weeks now.

  10. Ay been there bro – Northern California

  11. I used to live in Colorado up until a month ago, now I’m in florida. It’s like my lungs had holes in them I couldn’t breathe. That was a month ago I can’t imagine what it’s like now.

  12. So tragic! I have family in that area!

  13. Ahh the future I miss those times then it got cold and we had to cover our cities

  14.’ll only get worse,
    as derp liberals migrate from cali to colorado & texas

    Agenda 2021. Destroy all suburbs so they live in cities to 5 G can wipe out the population.

  16. Someone is setting these fires if y’all believe they not your all the way lost

    Probably should have raked more

    Said one person only

  18. 1:20 I can finally enjoy life thanks to, *p a i d t o b e h o m e .c o m*

  19. “You literally cannot see the sun, there it is in red, the sun that is invisible, you cannot see it, right there where I’m showing you. It is literally impossible to breathe, I say as I speak clearly and without difficulty, literally zero air, the world is smoke and flame, I came outside because I set my poptarts on fire, my universe is uninhabitable.”
