Colorado Wildfires in Pictures

September 8, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

On Monday (Sept. 6) a wildfire erupted in Colorado, near the city of Boulder.

3500 people have been evacuated from their home, and more evacuations are possible. 92 structures, including residential homes, have also been destroyed.

We hear about wildfires almost every year, and those of us who live far away from large forested areas don’t really get a sense of the magnitude of these fires.

To help, here are a couple of photos. The first two are from NASA’s AQUA satellite

The other photo hits a bit closer to home. Pretty amazing sight. Hopefully some wet weather will hit soon.
