Fire crews gained ground Sunday on a fast-moving wildfire that burned within 1,000 yards of homes a day earlier in Boulder, Colorado.

The blaze, which forced 19,400 residents to flee Saturday, was 35% contained by Sunday afternoon, and most evacuation orders were lifted.

A quick initial attack “combined with all of the fuels mitigation treatments that we’ve done in this area is one of the reasons that we’ve had such great success,” incident commander Mike Smith said Sunday.

  1. People will be kicking themselves in few weeks if they miss the opportunity to buy and invest in Bitcoin as it’s retracing….BE WISE

    1. Most people think…. Investing in*crypto is all about buying coins and holding, till it rises, 🙅 come on it takes much analysis to be a successful crypto trader.I’ve made $38,000 in two weeks of trade.

    2. I wanted to trade crypt0 but got confused by the fluctuations in price, and i don’t have any account manager any recommendations please?

  2. Because of influence of fossil fuel / petrochemicals in media, climate change mechanisms typically ignored: warming world, wildfires are on rise, hotter atmosphere retains more moisture, so when it rains it pours or stays dry longer, warmer winters means bark beetles don’t get killed off like used, so sick, stressed forests are more at risk, artic heating at a faster rate then rest of planet, so Jet Stream is getting sluggish and and wobbly, dry or wet conditions can linger in place more than in past, early spring onset, less snow pack accumulation…I offer solid citations at my show, thumbnail image “Speak No Evil,” about 15 shows back at my channel, i’d post a link but youtube often blocks them…
