Colorado Spring Fire 2018 - Night View

Post by Patriots » August 20th, 2018, 6:13 pm


A night view of the Spring Fire near La Veta, Colorado during July 2018 that became the third largest in Colorado's history. It lasted 30+ days with over 108,000 acres burnt and more than 200 homes destroyed or damaged.

Summary

The Spring Fire was started on June 27, 2018 at 3:57 p.m. by an individual, who was arrested. The response to contain the wildfire involved several agencies, including Bureau of Land Management, USDA Forest Service, Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control, and local Volunteer Fire Departments along with Colorado National Guard Security Forces and Military Police personnel performing check point and roving patrol work ... to minimize life safety and other values at risk. Several communities, including La Veta, in and adjacent to the fire were evacuated by County Authorities and Law Enforcement. A variety of tactics were used and several contingency plans were implemented. Firefighter and public safety remained the number one priority throughout the duration of this incident. It was officially contained on July 31, 2018.
