Colorado fire survivor on losing his home: "It's a difficult experience to go through"

In the hours since the Black Forest Fire broke out near Colorado Springs, Colo. Tuesday afternoon, more than 7,500 acres of land have been burned, and officials have issued evacuation orders for upwards of 2,500 homes.

With the red-hot flames, and thick, dark smoke continuing to engulf El Paso County, on Wednesday night Piers Morgan invited Ted Robinson to share painful details of his family's personal experience:

"Every time we saw a jet black plume of smoke we kind of knew that that was a home going up," he told the "Piers Morgan Live" host. "And we saw that happen right about where our neighborhood was and that's about when we felt like we could be sure that we had lost our home. We'd been there for 22 years."

Having lived in the area for nearly her entire life, Robinson revealed that his wife is taking the fire and its destruction extremely hard:

"For a woman like my wife who was raised there, she's got a very special connection with the terrain, with the area, with the feel, with the place itself," he revealed. "She's experiencing this loss in a way that resembles the time when she lost her mom and her dad and that is how connected we feel to the place in which we live here. So it's a difficult experience to go through."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Robinson as he explains why they feel so blessed for the support of their community, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Throughout the grand design of things you'll receive a B- with regard to effort. Where exactly you actually misplaced everybody was first on the specifics. You know, it is said, the devil is in the details... And that couldn't be much more true at this point. Having said that, allow me inform you just what exactly did do the job. Your text is highly persuasive and that is possibly the reason why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, while I can certainly notice the jumps in logic you make, I am not necessarily sure of how you appear to connect your details which in turn produce the final result. For right now I shall yield to your issue but wish in the near future you actually connect the facts better.

    Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
