Today, Congressman Steve Pearce issued the following statement, urging residents in fire areas to heed evacuation notices and other warnings given by fire fighting officials:
"As we have seen by the tragedy of the woman whose remains were found in her burned home in Colorado, the situations we are facing are grave," said Pearce. "Whenever warnings and notices are issued, residents must take heed and follow the advice of fire officials. I continue to extend my prayers for the families in harm's way and for the men and women so bravely fighting these fires. I thank the firefighters and local officials for their tireless efforts and hope that each of you will remain safe."
