Fort Carson Wildfire out; crews mopping up hot spots

Just as quickly as it exploded into a massive wildfire, the Quarry Fire at Fort Carson is out. There are no flames along the fire line at this hour; crews are mopping up hot spots. However, the wind has again whipped-up at the Mountain Post, creating the possibility of fanning the hot spots back to life.

Fort Carson is still pegging the acreage burned at 6,500 acres.

The cause of the fire appears to be an explosion in a rock quarry in a training area on post. The fire has been dubbed the Quarry Fire. Local fire agencies sent every available crew to battle the flames, which blew off of military land into Fountain at one point. Some evacuations were recommended for a time, and a Red Cross Shelter was opened in a church. The flames in Fountain were beaten back before they could reach any homes or businesses.

No injuries have been reported and no structures lost.

No problemo. And I don't think Tony reads here anymore. We're too good for him or something. Making millions selling Dodges.

If not quite yet Mike, meet us in Tucson on the 21st. We'll be getting out of Rain Bird camp that Saturday, then to Phx for a couple days.


But still come north on your way home.

She may be looking sooner than we thought. Her Ford was in the shop again yesterday. I'll have her call you soon. Even if it's to sit in one and try it out. See if she really wants one. Also looking at the Escape Hybrid.

If you can pick up an Escape Hybrid..or any Hybrid...for approx the same price as a non hybrid....do it. If not, don't bother....takes years to pay for that technology with the tiny difference in mpg...unless you just want to be green.

Let me know...

Good deal. I think she will look at both a regular and a hybrid. And the Jeep Liberty, even though hoskm01 doesn't like 'em. Matt, I did tell her your opinion, but she'll see for herself. She has the two door Ford Explorer Sport right now. Been good, but it's now nickel and dimeing us to death.

Just found the Escape on the site, I'll let her know. Exploder has about 200k or just a little less I think. I think it's a '98.

By the way Mike, did you ask because you're heading this way soon?

We're bailing out to Las Cruces on the 19th, sorry to miss Matt in Tucson. Then up to Flagstaff for a while to see how the weather is in Colorado and Wyoming. I'm thinking we'll see you guys in April. There's a KOA in Colorado Springs and Fort Collins, so we'll give you a shout when we know the dates.

Try to remember some of the teachings; I've been out of the loop for a while.

My impression is product orientation, customer input for future and developing products, and socialization and Brand brainwashing, whilst intoxicated to the point you wont argue, but will remember that name...


Of course, pics and review to follow.
