At approximately 10:30 am on Labor Day a fire broke out just west of Boulder.  In the dry conditions and strong winds the fire spread quickly.  There has been no official count of “lost” homes but it looks like a substantial loss.  One of our family friends rode up Sunshine Canyon with a Sheriff and found their house was burned to the ground.

Currently, there is a steady stream of air tankers shuttling between Broomfield and the fire right over my office.  Hopefully, the fire can be brought to containment quickly before more people are displaced.


The picture was taken from my front yard in Gunbarrel yesterday.  The sky had  a red glow and this morning we woke up with the smell of smoke in our house.
