Boulder Fourmile Canyon Fire

Jonathan Bartlett

Broomfield, United States

Artist's Description

For those of you who live in Colorado, you will probably remember the Fourmile Canyon Fire that occurred in the foothills of Boulder on September 6th, 2010.
The fire was one of the worst that Boulder has seen in a long time. The fire grew up to 7,100 acres before containment took over.
It took approximately 7-8 days to reach full containment.
Approximately 92 structure including many homes were destroyed by the fire; totaling more than $78 Million in property damages.
Gov. Ritter declared the fire a state of emergency and committed $5 million to fight the fire.
It was incredible to hear about, and heartbreaking to continually see updates. Many of my friends had to evacuate because they live up there. (None of their homes got destroyed that I know of.)
