A total of 172 structures, including 169 homes, have been destroyed by the 6,422-acre fire which started on Monday morning near Boulder, Colorado. About 3,000 people were evacuated after it broke out and about 1,000 firefighters were still on the line on Friday working to contain it.
They have made 78 drops, dropping 156,000 gallons of retardant, since the fire began...
This film was shot on location atop cliffs south east of the fire itself. The wind and fire combined to form a powerful force of destruction that was amazing to behold. I cannot recall seeing a fire quite this large before. My thoughts are with all of the people and other creatures that have been affected by this forest fire.
