DENVER — Residents who lost their homes in the Marshall Fire are welcome to visit Boulder County home improvement stores in the coming weeks to learn more about rebuilding and mitigation tips from FEMA specialists.

The fire damaged and destroyed more than 1,000 homes and businesses in Superior, Louisville and Boulder County on Dec. 30 after hurricane-force winds and extreme drought conditions helped push the flames across entire neighborhoods.
