Firefighter Footage Shows Homes Engulfed by Flames in Superior

Houses were engulfed by flames on the evening of December 30 in Superior, Colorado, as destructive wildfires forced evacuations in Boulder County.

Local officials ordered the evacuation of Louisville and Superior, both located southeast of Boulder, amid what the National Weather Service described as “life-threatening” conditions.

Around 35,000 people were evacuated and approximately 600 houses were destroyed, according to local news reports.

The Marshall Fire was an estimated 1,600 acres in size by Thursday afternoon, with Colorado Gov Jared Polis declaring a state of emergency.
