Mile High Magazine 10/17/2021 “Scarred: Lessons from the Cameron Peak Fire”

Guest: Dillon Thomas The Cameron Peak was Colorado’s largest wildfire to date in Colorado.  The fire began on August 13, 2020 and burned 208,913 acres of the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests in western Larimer County. Thought to be human-caused, the fire ignited on the flanks of Cameron Peak some 40 miles west of a major metropolitan area--Fort Collins.  The impacts of the fire are going to last years.  The fire itself destroyed hundreds of homes and closed trail systems and other recreation areas.  This year with the rain, it caused flash flooding which caused more deaths then the fire.  CBS 4 Denver is airing a 30-minute documentary on The Cameron peak Fire on October 22 at 6:30.
