1 min read


BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — Wind advisories might have ended Sunday night, but for some communities in the foothills, the next one could bring another high fire risk.

“Our grasses are drier, our trees are kind of coming out of that winter hibernation mode, if you will,” Seth McKinney, fire management officer for Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, said.

This year has been pretty typical, when it comes to grassfires, according to McKinney, though Boulder County has had its share of fires.

“We haven’t had any major incidents in the county,” McKinney said. “Couple of small grassfires here and there but easily picked up.”

McKinney credits vigilance by frontline crews and residents in foothill communities.
