Colorado and Utah wildfires
Flatirons Fire in Boulder
- stein0726, CNN iReport producer
Flames can now be seen from Boulder. These photos were taken from a third story roof deck on the Pearl St. Mall in Boulder Colorado. The temperatures have been in the hundreds for the last few days and humidity levels in the low 10s. A dry thunderstorm moved through the area around 1pm and most likely sparked the fire. I could see lightning striking this area as I was diving in Boulder around the time of the fast moving storm. There were only a few drops of rain generated by the storm.
