Wildfire information

The wildfire burning west of Golden has grown to 1200 acres. As the wind picks up, the smoke is being carried across the Front Range. If you are worried about the smoke inhalation and exposure, take a look at the Front Range Air Quality Forecast and Colorado Smoke Outlook from the Department of Public Health and Environment. You can check the air quality in your area and find tips on what to do if smoke is affecting you or your family. Information on the status of the Indian Gulch fire can be found through links on the Division of Emergency Management site. If you live in a fire prone area, you may want to read this guide from the Colorado State Forest Service: Protect your Home, Property and Forest from Wildfire. Two homes were saved from the fire last night thanks to fire mitigation.
