Colorado Fire: Rep. Joe Neguse of Colorado’s 2nd congressional district said on Thursday that he had evacuated with his family as a precaution and hoped that expected snow would provide some relief from the wildfires tomorrow.
“Obviously, today is a devastating day for Boulder County, our communities, Louisville, Superior, and the people of our state.” “He told CNN that. “These are unprecedented wildfires that have caused devastation and destruction that our state has never seen before.”
State representatives, according to Neguse, were in close contact with the governor, law enforcement, and first responders.

He added that the record-breaking winds that pushed the fires into residential areas would hopefully begin to die down in the evening – and would be aided further by the expected snowfall on Friday. “We’re just hoping that it will start soon so that our firefighters and first responders can get some relief as they work to protect our communities,” he said.
