It's been five years since the West Fork Fire Complex, Colorado's second-largest wildfire, scorched nearly 110,000 acres in the Wolf Creek Pass area.
The conditions for a massive wildfire were just right in June 2013, according to Mike Blakeman, public affairs officer for the Rio Grande National Forest.
"We had a low snow year, and it melted off quick," Blakeman said. "And then we had 50-60 mph winds. Single-digit relative humidities. All those things were going on at the same time."
