Unattended Campfire Nearly Became Colorado’s Newest Wildfire
This really isn't the time, campers.
Evergreen Fire Rescue posted a series of photos on their Facebook page on Saturday (Oct. 24) to discourage any open fires in the state, as they could cause another deadly wildfire in Colorado.
The campfire in Evergreen was unattended and reported on by citizens who saw the smoke. Evergreen Fire Rescue and Elk Creek Fire Rescue responded and put out the campfire, which was surrounded by dry pine needles and large trees. You can see the photos for yourself in the post below.
According to Colorado.gov, fire restrictions vary by county. You can check on the specifics of your county's fire restrictions right here.
