Hayman Fire Still Wreaking Havoc

Listen Now

10 years ago today, a forest service employee started Colorado's largest wildfire. The Hayman Fire claimed 100,000 acres and 133 homes. A decade later, the burn zone, southwest of Denver, is coming back. Except in places where conditions are actually worse. Jonathan Bruno explains to CPR's Ryan Warner how that can be. Bruno is with the Coalition for the Upper South Platte, which is coordinating the restoration.
