The Fourmile Fire broke out in the foothills west of Boulder in early September and wound up destroying 169 homes. It wasn't Colorado's largest fire, but it was the most destructive in terms of property damage in the state's history. It was determined that a volunteer firefighter was responsible for the start of the blaze. The 70-year-old had been burning brush on his property in a fire pit and a few days later the fire pit apparently reignited because it wasn't fully extinguished. No charges were filed by the Boulder County District Attorney. (credit: CBS)
