Worst Fire In Colorado History?

This picture was taken yesterday at ground zero of the High Park Fire west of Fort Collins, which the governor recently described as being the worst fire in Colorado history. No more smoke, no more flames – most of the burn area will be green in six weeks.

Colorado is not on fire. There are some forest fires burning, just like every year. Click on the image to see it full size.

    Well it was on the BBC World Service this morning so it must be worsr than normal or else we would not hear about it ;) Due to global warming you have not had too much rain over the winter and the summer and so this is what happens.
