The agency‘s director, Paul Cooke, said in a statement that firefighting efforts should focus on early detection and suppression before blazes rage out of control. A series of wildfires burned almost 250,000 acres and killed six people in Colorado in 2012, making it the state's worst wildfire season on record. Last year, the state's single most destructive wildfire destroyed nearly 500 homes and killed two people on the outskirts of Colorado Springs.
