Since 2000 1,769 homes have been destroyed by wildfires in Colorado — 850 in the last two years during the Black Forest and Waldo Canyon fires. The conflagrations have killed 8 residents and 12 firefighters.
The Denver Post has produced an excellent documentary, which includes photos, videos, audio of fire department radio transmissions, and interviews with firefighters, fire experts, politicians, and authors. We are not able to embed it here, but you can view it at the Denver Post website.
Thanks go out to Mike
