The December 30, 2021, Marshall Fire outside of Boulder will be remembered as the most destructive inferno in Colorado history and one of the top fifteen worst fires in the western U.S. In a little over four hours, the fire, fueled by high velocity Chinook winds, burns 6,026 acres, consumes 1,084 structures, and causes over $2 billion in damage. Over 37,500 residents evacuate. And yet miraculously, only two persons are killed and eight injured during the fire. Scenes during the fire are surreal with one house engulfed in flames while its neighbor sits quietly next-door displaying Christmas lights. The fury of the wind decides what burns and what stands untouched.
This is the story of the inferno, the heroes who fight it, the area history, the fire recovery, and the many miracles that happen along the way.
