Beside being a heart breaker, Colorado’s 2012 wildfire season was a record-breaker. The Waldo Canyon Fire destroyed 347 homes, which was the largest number in state history. The High Park Fire burned over 87,000 acres. It destroyed 259 homes.

The Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control reports that 4,167 wild-land fires destroyed more than 648 structures, killed six civilians, burned more than 384,803 acres and have caused at least $538 million in property losses.

Preliminary estimates for insured losses total $449.7 million for claims ranging from smoke damage to destroyed homes and the loss of personal belongings and vehicles.
