Wildfires: ‘A Deadly Epidemic Of Flame’; Sanctioned Camp For The Homeless; Thornton’s Jurassic Discovery

Listen Now

You can't help but think of wildfires with the eerie haze that's enveloped much of Colorado -- a byproduct of fires burning in the West. Boulder environmental journalist Michael Kodas says we're experiencing "a deadly epidemic of flame." His new book is called "Megafire." Kodas has fought fires himself in the past and one was raging in his own back yard as he wrote the book. Then, Durango may set up a sanctioned camp for the homeless. They're following the lead of a similar project in New Mexico. And, the latest on the Jurassic surprise in Thornton. Crews were moving dirt for a new police station and found a triceratops.
