The Colorado governor Jared Polis has declared a state of emergency, freeing up disaster emergency funds and providing other resources to aid in the response. During the evening press conference, governor Polis thanked first responders and shared that the National Guard and federal resources were being deployed to aid in the firefight, and would arrive soon. “This fire is not so much a question of resources,” he said. “This fire is a force of nature.”

Human-caused climate change has heightened the risks and set the stage for an increase in extreme weather events across the west, that’s been grown warmer and drier over the past 30 years.

“These are the worst conditions I have seen,” Lupher said calling it the perfect storm. “I can’t imagine it being much worse than this.”
