We are coming into the time of year were conditions can change in our state of Colorado.  Drought conditions persist in Colorado.  Both lightning storms and human recklessness could sparks fires in tinder-dry vegetation near your home in the mountains and the prairies.  Here are some steps you should take:

1.  Remove branches within 10 feet of the chimney.

2.  Create a 30 foot defensible space from your house.  Replace flammable vegetation with fire-resisting plants.

3.  Put woodpiles and liquid propane gas tanks at least 30 feet from all structures, and 10 feet away from vegetation.

4.  Space native trees and shrubs at least 10 feet apart.  On trees taller than 18 feet, prune lower branches within six feet on the ground.

The more you do now, may just save your home.
