Colorado Wildfires 2012

Saturday’s record heat had the whole state looking for shade and it also produced the eruption of more wildfires in Colorado and provided fuel and aggressive growth conditions for the fires already burning in the state. There are a total of eight major fires burning in Colorado as of Sunday morning. Take a look below to see what Steve Segin of the Rocky Mountain fire-incident team told The Denver Post.

“We have got a couple of critical fire days ahead, It is going to be very active. We haven’t had a fire season this bad since certainly 2002.”
