    Black Forest Colorado Fire


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     hcrockies took this photo on June 12 outside her home in northeast Colorado Springs. She says the smoke and smell of the fire was overwhelming spectators. 'Think about sitting right next to a campfire and you can smell the smoke and occasionally the smoke gets in your eyes, that's kind of what it's like here,' she says. 'You can smell things burning and the smoke can get so thick your eyes and throat hurt.'
    - jccarp, CNN iReport producer

    This photo was taken from my driveway, it's very smoky and hazy here as well as very scary.
