The Colorado State Trooper injured in a shootout on Interstate 70 earlier this month posed with local firefighters and runners.
What a difference a day makes. Last Tuesday, before the polls closed, firefighters at one high country department were concerned for their jobs. Now they’ve got new life.

Firefighters responded to a large structure fire in Eagle County on Monday afternoon.
This is expected to be one of Colorado’s busiest fire seasons in years, but despite that one high country fire department is making deep cuts.
