DENVER (KDVR) — As Colorado’s wildfire season expands beyond the summer months, Gov. Jared Polis along with other state officials addressed the public on wildfire response.

The 2021-2022 fire season is already underway, considering the Marshall fire in December being the most destructive fire in Colorado history.

Several wildfires have broken out since, including April 10 of this year when four different wildfires broke out on the same day.

Polis and others discussed the ongoing and new efforts by the state to prepare for future wildfires.
