The Waldo Canyon Fire is growing in three directions. The last estimate indicated the fire has consumed 2,000 acres, but it is certainly bigger than that now.
The fire is growing to the northeast, southwest, and northwest.
Evacuations have been ordered for Cedar Heights, part of Mountain Shadows, Manitou Springs, Cascade, Green Mountain Falls and Chipita Park.
Pre-evacuation orders have been issued from Morning Sun to Rampart Range Road south of Woodland Park.
A total of 11,000 are under evacuation orders.
Highway 24 is closed in both directions from 31st to Crystola.
