This June 27, 2012 photo shows Simone Covey, center, a 26-year-old single mother of three, sitting on a cot with her children and nephew at a Red Cross shelter in Colorado Springs, Colo., where they are staying after the Waldo Canyon Fire forced them from their home. Covey doesn't know if the apartment was damaged by the fire, which has destroyed hundreds of homes and has so far forced mandatory evacuations for more than 32,000 residents. Pictured from left to right are Emma Covey, 6; Covey's nephew, Zack Miller, 5; Simone Covey; Logan Thompson-Covey, 2 and Nyomie Covey, 5. (AP Photo/Thomas Peipert)
