At site off a home once rented by Kenneth Atkinson in Superior, the Knobs on an outdoor grill melted by the heat of the Marshall fire after it burned through the neighborhood six months ago.

Two people died, and more than 1,100 homes and other buildings were destroyed in the Marshall Fire, which hit neighborhoods in Louisville and Superior. Following the most devastating fire in Colorado history, investigators still haven't specified a cause, but say they've learned a number of lessons from the blaze.
