I used to live in Boulder, Colorado. Its a gorgeous place. It seems that every summer now I worry about my friends there and whether or not this will be the year that their houses burn down. The heat and dry wind seem to be a perfect combination to spread fire. As you can see from the picture above, there are fires in the mountains above town (not to mention several of my friends and I have lived up in those mountains). Sparks can easily blow down on to town and start a blaze. This is just not a good situation. The video below is a time lapse of this fire developing.
Things look much more dire in Colorado Springs. I guess it's pretty hot in Arizona too.
