Heavy rains and scarring from recent wildfires sent walls of water crashing down mountainsides early Thursday in Colorado, cutting off mountain towns, forcing the University of Colorado to cancel classes. At least three people are reported dead.
The year was 2012. The fire began on June 30, it was contained on July 9th and was officially called "out" in mid-December. By the time it was all said and done, the Squirrel Creek Fire had burned nearly 11,000 acres of land approximately 30 miles southwest of Laramie.
