Burnt vehicles are towed away from the Marshall Fire neighborhood

BOERSER COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) – Cleanup crews began moving Friday morning burned vehicles from neighborhoods devastated by the Marshall’s fire.

According to Boulder County Public Works, 1,381 damaged or destroyed vehicles are parked in public the right of way when the fire passes.

The county contracted with towing companies to remove all of the burned-out vehicles. They will be towed to a secure yard, where they will verify vehicle identification numbers and create a directory.

“If anyone’s car is moved, they can call us and we can get them in so the officer who adjusts their insurance or anyone who needs access to the car can do so.” Boulder County Public Works spokesman Andrew Barth said.

The work is expected to take two to four weeks to complete. Streets need to be cleared before contractors can begin clearing individual sites.

“We needed to get the big construction companies to get through with heavy side pickups, parallel axle trucks, excavators, everything so we could start digging,” says Barth.

Once site-by-site cleanup work begins, work is expected to take up to 18 months to complete the entire disaster area cleanup.
