    Fire at Heil Ranch

    Just saw that The Boulder Camera is reporting a small fire at Heil Ranch. First they're saying it was 10sq ft, now a quarter acre.

    Fire at Heil Ranch

    10 sq ft?! Now that's some quick reporting. I've seen bigger fire resulting from lighting farts.

    Hope they get it under control as well.

    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    Fire at Heil Ranch

    Well we just got pounded by thunderstorms and lots of rain. Hopefully that will help with putting this out.

    The lightning flash was probably bigger than that so called fire!

    Takes me back to my Jr high school days. We'd get some matches and, uh, well....you don't want to know.

    I was riding Heil/Hall on Saturday. When I was at the Heil overlook I don't remember any smoke, but by the time I was headed up the road to Hall I could see a small bit of smoke. It was small enough I figured it was just someone burning off brush or the like. Part way up into Hall the heli arrived and I realized it probably was something else but the smoke never looked big. And glad it didn't amount to more.

    Saw this the next day I think: Small fire burning in Boulder County's Heil Valley Open Space mostly outŁ - Boulder Daily Camera

    I'd be interested to know what happened. The clouds didn't really move in until I was coming out of Hall a while later after I saw the smoke.
