Veterans, firefighters work to protect homes from future wildfires in Lakewood
LAKEWOOD, Colo. -- Military veterans, firefighters, and parks and recreation people got together Saturday to take action to protect homes from wildfires. The big project in the Green Mountain area was aimed at removing heavy brush and trees in the open space next to private properties. Some of that growth came up to wooden fences, so removing it would reduce the risk of wildfires spreading to the homes.
