  1. Almost are so responsible we’re lucky to have them around. Seriously how long are we going to tolerate this. How long until they start a fire like Boulder just had? The topography is pretty similar.

      1. Lol, I guess there’s a small patch of g * r * a *s *s and a few trees that could catch fire there. Most of the high risk areas are west of the interstate and also the black forest area. Keep them away from there, because that’s where they could do the most fire damage. Of course there are more serious safety risks on Platte such as getting shot or stepping on a used needle.

  2. Almost everyday another article about a homeless camp causing a fire. Just a matter of time before one causes serious damage. The hills above Manitou are full of homeless.
