DENVER (CBS4) – The 2013 wildfire that broke out in the Black Forest community burned hundreds of homes, killed two people, and scorched thousands of acres. The only thing left for many residents was a cluster of blackened pine trees.
One woman affected by the destruction decided to utilize her burnt trees in the rebuilding process. With the help of a reclaimed wood artist, charred logs were turned into home furniture.READ MORE: Brighton Police: Suspect In Stolen Vehicle Arrested After 2 Bystanders Killed
