DENVER (AP) -- A state commission is meeting Monday to hear from experts and residents about mistakes and cleanup efforts for the deadly Lower North Fork wildfire in March.
The five-member commission is reviewing legislation or policies that could improve the response to future blazes.
The March wildfire in the foothills southwest of Denver killed three people and damaged two dozen houses, causing at least $11 million in property damage. It started when a prescribed burn on state forest land flared up a few days after it appeared to be extinguished.
