Officials: Colorado wildfire caused $513 million in damage
LOUISVILLE, Colo. (AP) – Colorado authorities say last week’s wildfire caused $513 million in damage and destroyed 1,084 homes and structures.
It’s the first estimate of economic damage for the Dec. 30 blaze, the most destructive wildfire in state history.
Boulder County released the new totals Thursday after further assessing the suburban area located between Denver and Boulder.
Authorities previously estimated that at least 991 homes and other buildings were destroyed.
Two people are missing, though officials have found partial human remains at one location.
