This video, similar to a previous upload, shows the critical time on Tuesday 6/26/12 when 65 mph winds propelled the fire front across Queens Canyon, after which the flames charged into the Mountain Shadows neighborhood and destroyed more than 300 homes. A before-and-after helps to depict the dramatic change in conditions that day. This was taken from south of Glen Eyrie/Garden of the Gods and facing north. This is a side view of the fire's advance whereas most observers saw the approach directly from the east.
