The Heartstrong Fire in Yuma County, Colorado. March, 2012

The fire outlook for Colorado was recently released by the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention & Control.  The document shows the areas with the greatest potential wildfire danger are the plains of Eastern Colorado reported Laura Palmisano for KVNF

The potential will remain until the plains “green-up” expands. 

It should be noted the area is currently in severe to extreme drought.
