High Park Fire
While we were in Colorado we heard someone talking about a forest fire that had burned 10 acres. Within a few hours it had grown to 100 acres. It soon turned into the most destructive fire in Colorado history - over 87,000 acres. From Estes Park we could see the smoke billowing up each day. Now the total is at least 257 homes destroyed. A dry winter, extreme heat and low humidity now, plus wind is making this a very dangerous fire.
It started June 9th by lightening. The fire is at 55 percent containment. An estimated date for full containment has been pushed back to July 30.
