It’s been six months since the Fourmile Canyon Fire tore through the hills west of Boulder. It destroyed nearly 170 homes, including the one Marisha Evans was born in and lived in until her family was evacuated last September. Evans is a freshman at Boulder High School. She wrote a poem called “Home” to commemorate the event.

Evans read her poem Monday as part of a special “Words to Stir The Soul” event. It was put on by the Center of the American West at CU-Boulder.
