Evacuations Ordered As ‘Life Threatening’ Fires Break Out in Colorado



Fires broke out near Boulder, Colorado, on Thursday, December 30, clouding the sky with smoke and prompting evacuation orders in the area. Fire spread was exacerbated by gusting winds recorded at over 100 mph, the National Weather Service (NWS) reported. The NWS’s Boulder office reported “life threatening” conditions in Superior and Louisville, Colorado, located southeast of Boulder. The Boulder Office of Emergency Management said in a tweet that residents should “leave immediately” if they see fire in their area and an evacuation order was issued for all of Superior. This footage was filmed and uploaded by Twitter user @deadpan_badger, who said it was taken in Superior and shows fires burning on Thursday. Credit: @deadpan_badger via Storyful
