(photo: Helen H. Richardson, The Denver Post caption: Immanuel Mgana holds his daughter Grace Mgana, 2, as the two survey what is left of their home. The family lost their entire house. Immanuel had been deployed in the army in East Africa and saw the picture by the Denver Post of their home on fire that ran on the front page. He was immediately allowed to come home to his wife and three children. Residents were allowed back today July 1, 2012 into the Mountain Shadows subdivision to visit their homes five days after the Waldo Canyon fire ravaged their neighborhood. Over 340 homes were lost in this subdivision. Many homes were burned to the ground while others, sometimes next door, were left untouched. It was the first opportunity for homeowners to see if their homes were lost or still standing.)
