The Waldo Canyon Fire: Fires on the Colorado Front Range and Home Destruction - A Report to the Pike and San Isabel National Forests

Author(s): Richard D. Stratton
Year Published: 2012
Description:

The purpose of this white paper is to discuss fires on the Colorado Front Range and to share initial observations of fire behavior and home destruction during the Waldo Canyon Fire. It is my hope that these lessons and observations will be beneficial to agencies and especially the public. I want to share this information early when our feelings and experiences are near the surface; when many are rethinking and others rebuilding.
