In October of the year 2020, the East Troublesome Fire began to spread across the landscape.
According to records from the United States Forest Service, people were to blame for igniting the wildfire that was Colorado’s second-largest in the state’s documented history of wildfires.
According to a news release that was released by the Forest Service, the investigation is still ongoing because it is taking place in such a remote region and because it is taking place during the off-season. There is a possibility that the fire was started in the wilderness by someone who was hunting or camping there.
The organization claims that it is still unknown what caused the East Troublesome Fire; nonetheless, they were able to come to this conclusion based on evidence that was acquired when the fire was originally started.
It was reported that a fire was found roughly 24 kilometers (about 15 miles) north-northeast of Kremmling on October 14, 2020.
