Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement in response to the wildfires burning throughout the state, including those in Black Forest, Rocky Mountain National Park, and the Royal Gorge area of Colorado.
“Our thoughts are with those who have lost their homes and property in these fires,” Bennet said. “Unfortunately, Coloradans are all too familiar with how quickly wildfires burn and the dangers they pose. We have been in touch with local authorities on the ground and are monitoring the situation closely to ensure our firefighters and first responders will have all the federal resources they need to combat these fires.”
