Fire Season

Photo from Denver Post website

Colorado has several active wildfires burning; the worst is named Lower North Fork Fire in Jefferson County. The fire has burned over 4,500 acres, there is 0% containment, 16 structures destroyed, and two deaths. Many people have been evacuated and the weather forecast is for high winds. My brother who lives several miles east of the fire area took the photo below from his deck this morning. The first reports suggest that this disaster is the result of a controlled burn started several days ago.
