Officials are looking at the possibility that the fire might have been human caused.  They have seen a witness' video of a shed on fire located in an undisclosed location. That shed fire was seen shortly before the Marshall Fire had started so officials are looking into the possibility that the shed fire might have been the cause of the Marshall Fire. That shed fire was burning during a 'no-burn' time meaning there was a high-fire-danger warning given at that time.

@SilleeMee   I read that three people were missing.  Have you heard if they have been found?

 

When we want to burn garden and tree trimmings we have to get a permit from the county and call b4 we are allowed to burn.  We also need a source of water.  It's crazy that someone would burn either legally or illegally on such a windy day.  So much devastation!  DW

I heard they were getting a search warrant for a "suspicious" property.  I wonder if it could be the one with the shed.  Sounds like law enforcement is onto something.

@dancingwoman 

I saw that on the news yesterday. I was happy to see one person was found alive.

 

There has been a search warrant issued by Boulder County to look at the burning shed incident which has been under scrutiny since the video surfaced. Arson charges could be issued if things are found illegally burned.

I live in Boulder and fortunately, we are 6 miles from the fire and did not have to evacuate. It was very, very scary to be so close and keep following the situation. I am proud of how much our community has offered help and resources to those who are impacted.
