The Marshall Fire

The Most Destructive Wildfire in Colorado History

On December 30, the Marshall Fire rushed through Superior and Louisville, Colorado destroying more than 1,000 homes, 7 commercial properties, and 6,000 acres of land. An additional 150 properties have been reported as damaged, along with 30 more commercial buildings.

We didn't waste any time joining Nick Jacobs of Diverge Homes in showing our support to the residents of this neighborhood and we did our 1st walk-thru a few days after the fire. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this tragic disaster. The sense of loss that hovers like fog over the fire consumed area is hard to put into words. The pictures above ☝ are only a part of the heart-breaking scene we encountered.

Certified and Licensed Remediation Contractors should do Fire Restoration in Boulder County with capabilities to remove all contamination hazards. During a fire, materials containing asbestos & lead are disturbed and present health hazards. Abatement, as well as Water Dry-out to prevent mold growth, is necessary. Lastly, the odor and soot from the fire damage must be removed before residents are fully safe.

Environmental Concerns

What if my fire damaged property contains asbestos or some other hazard?

Usually water damage will accompany fire damage due to fire fighter efforts to douse the flames and also the sprinkler systems. But these are not the only concerns. Asbestos-containing materials, when disturbed, can release hazardous asbestos fibers into the air affecting the indoor air quality. If asbestos is detected on the property, it too will need to be remediated before the property can be restored to pre-loss condition. Other hazards that restoration contractors may encounter include mold growth from the water damage or lead exposure from lead-based paint that is chipped or worn.

Health Concerns

Fires emit a lot of particles (also known as Particulate Matter, PM) and gases. Smaller sizes of PM penetrate deep into the lungs and are harmful to human health. Some of the gases emitted and created in fire plumes are Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). These compounds create the smell of a fire plume (and linger post-fire). Many of the gases emitted by active fires are also harmful to human health.
