Boulder Fire

Lightning struck back behind Bear and Green Mountains yesterday afternoon and sparked a fire. Smoke is billowing over the mountains down Dinosaur Mountain, NCAR, and the Shanahan Ridge neighborhood. The fire has engulfed 230 acres. It's really scary and sad to see the flames and smoke. Here are some pictures from the end of our street.



(Dan): We walked to the end of the road a few times tonight to check out the flames. There are spots on the NE face of Bear Pk. and along the ridge to the south. While looking through a small monocular I saw a fairly large flame burst into existence along Bear's N or NW ridge and within a minute die down again -- I imagine it was a long-dead tree igniting.
