Unprecedented wildfires in Boulder and Jefferson County, Colorado, forced more than 30,000 people to evacuate their homes as strong winds and drought fueled the fires. As of Friday, December 31, 2021, approximately 600 homes were destroyed, as well as a hotel and retail businesses. The towns of Superior and Louisville, about 20 miles northwest of Denver, were evacuated and have been hit the hardest. Wind gusts up to 115 mph caused flames to jump, making it difficult for firefighters to contain the blaze.
