Two months ago today, the Black Forest Fire started its destructive journey. The fire expanded quicker than anyone could have imagined. After it was fully contained nine days later, it ended up being the most destructive fire in Colorado’s history.
The numbers are haunting
– 14,280 acres burned
– 486 homes destroyed
– 37 homes damaged
– 2 deaths
This post is to help us remember the great sacrifices and hard work that all of the emergency workers made. It is also to remind us that many people are still homeless, even tonight.
The smoke smell is still present most everywhere you go
My heart goes out to those who lost everything
