FIRESTONE, Colo. — Community members are invited to take part in a memorial for the two men who died in a home explosion in Firestone on April 17.

The cause of the explosion is still under investigation, but more than 3,000 gas wells have been shut down as a precaution.

The home was just 170 feet away from one.

On Sunday, Mark Martinez and his brother-in-law, Joey Irwin, will be remembered with a balloon release at Settlers Park in Firestone.

The release is scheduled to take place at 4:30 p.m. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the families.
