    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     bhanson83 and his wife documented wildfires encroaching on their Colorado Springs neighborhood moments before officials placed their community under a mandatory evacuation. They had enough time to pack up their belongings and move to a nearby hotel. "At this point, we're sitting tight and waiting to see if the houses are there are not. We're just taking it day by day."

    My wife Maria Hanson snapped this  photo from our bedroom window moments after they declared mandatory evacuation.
