Fourmile Fire Marked With New Exhibit At CU

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – The Museum Of Natural History at the University of Colorado Boulder has marked the first anniversary of the Fourmile fire with a new exhibit.

“Burning Issues: The Fourmile Canyon Fire” uses research from a CU professor to highlight the factors that made the fire so destructive. Those factors include how fire is affected by weather, landscape, forest density and human behavior.

“We hope that people will learn some of the factors that play into forest fire activity, what makes fires more likely to occur in the area, and what people can do to live in areas that are prone to fires and protect themselves as well as possible,” Rebecca Wahlberg with the Museum of Natural History said.

The exhibit runs through Jan. 26.
