These fires a burning the most pristine forests in Colorado. I used to live in the High Park area years ago.

These pine beetles are killing all the trees! They dry up and are prime kindling for a fire. Whenever you watch a video of the fire, look for clumps of brown trees. Those trees were killed by pine beetles.
