Cold Springs Fire

Geno the dog is still missing, so here are new photos of him

There’s no sign yet of Geno, the St. Bernard who fled the Cold Springs Fire in Nederland. These photos, shared today, give a little more detail on the big good boy.

There’s also a spot of bright news in today’s Geno update.

Two other dogs identified during the search are now happily back with their families, according to Geno’s owners. We don’t know the stories of those other dogs yet (let us know if you know).

Meanwhile, the Schmidtmanns (who are both emergency responders) are rebuilding their life. Their home on Sherwood Road was destroyed by the fire. It’s also the last known location of Geno, so we’re mapping it below.

A fundraiser for the family was just short of its $85,000 goal as of 1 p.m. Thursday. A fundraiser for everyone affected is running at ColdSpringsFireFund.org.

What they really want back the most – besides Geno – may be their cookbooks. Their bookshelves and their handwritten notes destroyed, they’re looking for new recipes.
