Photos: The people of the Waldo Canyon fire

"We will rebuild Majestic Drive."

These are the words of Terry Rector, a Colorado Springs lawyer who gathered with a number of others who also lived on Majestic (map here), before the area was devastated by the Waldo Canyon fire.

Yesterday, photographer Brandon Marshall spent the day in the Springs at gatherings like this one, meeting the people affected by the blaze, as well as those lending a helping hand and leading the fight to extinguish the flames once and for all. He tells their stories in words and pictures below.
