Waldo Canyon Fire behavior continues to change and be aggressive. A new mandatory evacuation order has been issued for:

Rockrimmon and Woodmen Valley, west and north of Woodmen Road and I-25 and west and north of Rockrimmon Blvd and Vindicator Drive.

Pinon Valley and Pine Cliff, west and north of Garden of the Gods Road and I-25 to Centennial north to Ute Valley Park

The mandatory evacuation order remains for all of Cedar Heights, Mountain Shadows and Peregrine. Residents are asked to leave the area immediately and may not return home.

Residents are being notified by reverse 911 calls and by uniformed police officers advising them of the mandatory evacuation. If residents choose not to comply with these mandatory evacuation orders, the Colorado Springs Police Department and Colorado Springs Fire Department may not be able to assist you or guarantee your protection.

The Red Cross Shelter at the Cheyenne Mountain High School is open. Residents can bring small caged pets and companion animals (cats & dogs) with them to the shelter. The Penrose Equestrian Center is sheltering large animals.
