TOM BEARDEN: Rideout says the High Park fire is something of a perfect storm, a very dry winter, high winds fanning the flames, and a great deal of fuel to burn. Add the very difficult terrain, and experts say this fire is likely to keep on burning until the fall.
The burn area has had flash flood warnings for the last two days. I haven’t seen any smoke since Sunday. There probably still are a few smoldering logs somewhere up there, but for all intents and purposes the fire is done. The picture below was taken in the burn area on Wednesday.
