I have friends who have a cabin near the fire  area.  It came within a mile of their property before the recent snows fell and took away  some of the dryness. The region is mostly very difficult to traverse and dangerous even  in clear weather and no fire.  Sending people and equipment to fight  the fires would be a loosing battle. Hopefully  the new growth over the next few years will be spectacular to see.

I remember well how concerned most of us were after the big fire in Yellowstone NP back in 1988. The next spring we visited the park and it was heartbreaking but one of the wildlife biologists there gave a talk that we attended and told us that in less than 5 years there would be more wildlife in the park than had been there for 50 years because mature forests do not support the amount of wildlife that broken country with meadows does. If you visit there today you see far more wildlife than we did when we used to take family trips there in the 80's. Perhaps given time, that will prove to be true for Rocky Mountain NP.
