September 6th, 2010. Smoke fills the air as the wildfire is being doused via a fire rescue helicopter.
Monday, September 6, 2010
The Fourmile Fire burned 169 homes to the ground and destroyed more than 6,000 acres of wildlands. Over 3,000 residents of the steep, forested area were forced to evacuate. By the time the fire was extinguished it had cleared the area of so much vegetation that it will remain prone to flash flooding for generations.
