2 wildfires prompt evacuations in Boulder

BOULDER — Two wildfires burning in Boulder County have grown to about 134 acres.

The fires broke out today and prompted the evacuation of the homes of 1,700 people in the city of Boulder as well as more in the neighboring foothills.

The fires are closer to the city than the wildfire that destroyed more than 160 houses in the foothills last month. That fire was the most destructive in Colorado history in terms of property damage.

Fire officials said the blaze isn’t as dangerous as the September wildfire that burned 10 square miles, because the winds were calmer today.
