Hundreds of homes have been destroyed in Colorado, and tens of thousands of people have been ordered to flee due to fast-moving wildfires:
Hundreds of houses have been destroyed as two wildfires erupted and swiftly spread along Colorado’s Front Range on Thursday, causing tens of thousands of people to flee their homes, according to the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office.
According to Sheriff Joe Pelle, five hundred eighty houses or other structures in and around Superior may have been destroyed.
The flames also devoured a retail complex and a hotel in Superior:
Wildfires fanned by winds of 80-100 mph, with gusts as high as 115 mph in certain state regions, injured at least six people, forced the evacuation of Superior and Louisville near Boulder and forced a hospital to relocate patients.
According to the sheriff, the Marshall Fire had burned at least 1,600 acres and spread east across Superior and Louisville. The Middle Fork Fire, on the other hand, was tackled swiftly and “lay down,” according to Pelle. The sheriff noted that authorities were keeping a watch on it.
Pelle said there were no early reports of civilian injuries or missing persons. Blowing debris caused a slight eye injury to one law enforcement officer.
“Given the size of the fire, its severity, and its position in such a highly-populated area, we would not be surprised if there are deaths or fatalities,” he said. “There’s very little time to get out, very little time to reclaim the most important pieces of your life, and certainly, it’ll be a horrible process for Boulder families who are directly affected to rebuild their lives,” he continued.
Louisville and Superior are roughly 4 miles apart, and Boulder is not far away:
According to a UC-Health spokeswoman, at least six individuals are being treated for injuries caused by one of the fires. Kelli Christensen said there was no additional information for the patients at UC-Health Broomfield Hospital.
Avista Adventist Hospital, for example, was forced to evacuate its patients and personnel. According to the facility’s website, it has 114 beds. As per police, Boulder Hospital administrators were more concerned about smoke than the fires only a few streets away.
“If you’re in the region, please act fast,” the Boulder County Office of Emergency Management tweeted to Louisville residents.
