416 FIRE 

The Durango “416 Fire” is the sixth-largest wildfire in the history of Colorado, burning over 54,000 acres of public and private land, forcing residents to evacuate their homes, and negatively impacting local businesses by closing them down or depriving them of revenue.  Following the 416 Fire, devastating flooding and mudslides have further impacted the Durango and Silverton communities.
