Thousands have been forced to flee massive wild fires in Colorado Springs over the past few days, including a rabbi and his family. Rabbi Moshe Liberow was given minutes to evacuate his house.

“I never dreamed that this fire would be anywhere near my house,” his wife Zelda told Chabad.org, a news Website.  “We knew it was getting close, but then, all of a sudden, the entire city was covered in smoke. It was 5:00 in the afternoon and everything was pitch black.”

Some 26,000 people have left the area since fires began earlier this week. On Wednesday the couple and their children were looking for long-term accommodations near their evacuated home.
