The Cal-Wood fire in Boulder County destroyed at least 20 homes on Saturday and damaged two more.
County officials on Sunday released the addresses of the homes that were destroyed and damaged. We’ve mapped them below so you can better understand the fire’s toll.
Nearly 9,000 acres burned and thousands of people were forced to flee their homes as the fire raced down Lefthand Canyon from near the Cal-Wood Education Center near Jamestown on Saturday afternoon.

The Cal-Wood fire is the largest by acreage recorded in Boulder County history.
