With tens of thousands of acres aflame in Colorado, many mountain home and property owners are madly working on fire mitigation – but may not know they can get both tax breaks and grant money to help.
The Waldo Canyon Fire has burned nearly 18,000 acres near Colorado Springs. As of Sunday evening, the blaze was 55% contained. It has damaged almost 350 homes in the city and is responsible for two deaths.
After 22 days and 87,284 acres charred, fire managers have announced that the High Park Fire is now fully contained. Mop up operations will continue to deal with hotspots on the edges of the fire.
