The Colorado wildfires have been an enormous pain for the people of Colorado, which has suffered nearly $10 billion in damage, the most in the country.
And now the fires have gotten even bigger.
The largest wildfire in U.S. history has killed 13,000 people and destroyed more than a quarter of the state’s land.
The fires, dubbed the Black Friday Fires by local media, have destroyed thousands of homes and businesses and forced thousands of people to flee.
In a bid to help the victims, Gov.
John Hickenlooper has ordered a state of emergency for the entire state, including counties and municipalities that were already under a state-wide emergency.
It also extends a state disaster declaration for the eastern half of the county.
Hickenloopers office is currently on a 10-day trip to California to visit the state and assess the damage and help victims recover.
