What is a Fire Chimney? Steep areas with seasonal drainage, causing low thick vegetation. With dry season, everything dries out and causes fire, if started, to travel rapidly up the chimneys. According to Bob Schneider, Administrator, Inter-Canyon Fire District, all lots that are outlined on the following map are probably in a Fire Chimney, and owners should take extra precautions to protect against Wildfire hazard. The following list of wildfire safety guidelines from the Colorado State Forest Service are guidelines for everyone living in a forested area, but especially for those living in a Fire Chimney.
