    Colorado Springs Fire


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     SilverViking captured this video on June 26, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He says the fire was intense. 'I watched it destroy hundreds of homes in just a short amount of time,' he says. For the past week he says emotions have been running high, but he says the community has come together to support each other. 'The fire has directly impacted everyone in this city one way or another. As for me, the impact came when I was recording and watching my city burn. I grew up in this city and to watch it change so quickly right in front of me is something I will always remember,' he says.
