Wildfires in Colorado - whether in mountain areas or the open plains - often lead to evacuations. Fire danger has frequently been high in the state due to dry conditions and drought through much of the winter. Drought has become extreme in several areas of the state, further increasing the risk.

A fire evacuation can occur with little warning. You may only have minutes - and some cases even less time - to move yourself and your family to safety.
