Most Destructive Fire In Colorado History

The blaze in the Black Forest area northeast of Colorado Springs is now the most destructive in Colorado history, surpassing last year’s Waldo Canyon fire, which burned 347 homes, killed two people and led to $353 million in insurance claims.

“I never in my wildest dreams imagined we’d be dealing a year later with very similar circumstances,” said El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa. “Maybe we just had 20 to 30 years of luck.”

No, Sheriff, but 20-30 years of climate change might have something to do with it.
