Today is the one-year anniversary of the Black Forest Fire - the most destructive wildfire in Colorado’s history.  In recognition of the anniversary, Denver’s CBS4 is airing a half-hour special that will provide important information for residents everywhere living in an area with wildland fire potential. 

In addition to the Black Forest Fire, they’ll take a look back at the South Canyon Fire on Storm King Mountain near Glenwood Springs, CO that killed 14 firefighters. The 20th anniversary of that tragic fire is July 6. 

Viewers will also learn about the science of wildfire, mitigation and how firefighters fight flames from the air.  The special segment airs at 6:30pm MDT and will also be available on their website.
