Saving a Neighborhood

Listen Now

The Fourmile Canyon Fire west of Boulder has destroyed around 170 homes. But not Murray and Jan Eaton’s. They say they have one person to thank for that - their neighbor Dave Steinmann, who happens to be a volunteer firefighter. They recently bumped into Steinmann at a donation center for evacuees in Boulder. The Eatons thanked Steinman. Murrray Eaton says, "If his (Steinmann's) house had gone it could have gotten the Cotopaxis then it would have been across the road to us." Ryan Warner talks with Dave Steinmann from the hotel where he and his family are staying until they are able to go home.
