Severe flooding will follow the fire for several years.

Recovery following a fire takes a decade.

You need experts who can and will properly and professionally assess and calculate your damages. Local governments that failed you must compensate you for your losses, your pain and your suffering.

The Marshall Fire was started by a 150 year old coal seam fire that surfaced in the high winds.  Boulder County and Boulder City knew about the fire for decades.

” UNLIKE SO MANY of Colorado’s wildfires, the Marshall Fire began out on the plains. The flames tore through grasslands and shrubs and burned more than 1,000 homes, making it the most destructive in the state’s history. Boulder County, once a coal-mining hub, now faced a destructive fire regime, fueled in part by the carbon that was mined there a century ago.”

“Housing developments now dominate the Front Range. In Boulder County, the suburbs were often built on the scaffolds of old coal-mining towns. A map from 1915 shows the Northern Coal Field of Colorado running beneath much of the Marshall Fire burn area: Louisville, once the heart of that coal field, now a quiet suburb where more than 500 homes burned; Old Town Superior, home to people who worked at the Industrial, Enterprise and Monarch mines; and Marshall Mesa, a swath of open space where trail signs remind hikers of the coal seam fires that burned underground and where the Marshall Fire may have started.”
