Drought and heat combined to cause some of the most destructive Colorado wildfires in the state's history. The Denver Post reported that the disastrous wildfire era could continue because of overgrown forests. "The threat to Colorado homes in 2013, it now appears, will likely be as high as ever," the paper wrote. This year's wildfires will probably cost more than $450 million, and one undersecretary of the Department of Agriculture said the recovery could take years, if not decades.
