The record-setting Colorado fires that broke out Dec. 30, 2021 destroyed more than 1,000 structures and swept through several towns. The scenes from Colorado have been accurately described as a “war zone” with wildfires burning 6,000 acres across Boulder County. The fires brought 40-foot-high flames that engulfed enormous stretches of grass in just seconds, forcing the evacuation of thousands of people. The significance of fire safety and property insurance has never been more important.

Scientists say climate change is making weather more extreme and wildfires more frequent and destructive. The fires charred numerous neighborhoods in a suburban area northwest of Denver and high winds pushed flames that fed on bone-dry grasses and vegetation on open spaces to suburban subdivisions. Global warming increases the risk of the hot, dry weather that fuels wildfires. About 90 percent of Boulder County was in severe or extreme drought last Dec. Denver set a record for consecutive days without snow before it got a small storm on Dec. 10. The fires, fueled by dry conditions and winds that gusted more than 100 mph, were blamed for destroying more than a thousand structures.
Most homes affected by the raging wildfires in Colorado were completely destroyed. The fires caused severe property damage to both structures and personal belongings. A fire damage insurance claim could also include potential lost wages and business interruption losses. Even partial property damage caused by a fire can make a house unlivable or require costly repairs. Additionally, fires can damage heating and cooling systems as well as plumbing.
