Posted at 9:56 AM, Jun 23, 2022

COLORADO SPRINGS — The 2012 Waldo Canyon Fire left the Colorado Springs area in a "frenzy." The fire started on June 23, 2012, approximately four miles northwest of Colorado Springs, Colorado.

More than 18,000 acres in Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, and Woodland Park were consumed by the fire. The fire claimed two lives and destroyed 347 buildings, mostly in the Mountain Shadows neighborhood.

In 2012 more than 10,000 calls designed to warn people to evacuate during the Waldo Canyon Fire never reached the people they were intended to help, it was an eye-opening discovery.

News5 would like to know if you were impacted by the fire.
