Authorities Hope Snow and Weaker Winds Help Control Colorado Wildfires

Authorities in Colorado are hoping that snow and milder winds will help to control the wildires burning in northern Colorado.

In Boulder County, hundreds of homes have been burned and hundreds of thousands have evacuated their homes, as the fires have affected over 6,000 acres.

While the fire is currently considered 0% contained, it is not expected to grow.

“We are fortunate that the winds dissipated last night. We’re expecting snow today, that snow has already started. We’re hoping to see three to six inches of snow and some good moisture. That’s certainly going to help our efforts,” Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle said.

Pelle said that of the 2,000 or so homes in the area, about 500 or so were lost in the blaze.
