It’s been almost six months since the High Park Fire destroyed 259 homes in the foothills north of Fort Collins. Since the fire started on June 9, homeowners like Sharon and Mike Guli have navigated the complex worlds of clean up, insurance claims, and rebuilding. But they still have a long road ahead.
