DENVER — It's been more than eight months since the Camp Fire ripped through Northern California.
It was the state's deadliest fire. 85 people were killed and nearly 19,000 buildings were destroyed. The small town of Paradise was devastated.
New reporting suggests there may be hundreds of small communities with an even higher risk of devastating fires. The analysis comes from the Arizona Republic in Phoenix, in partnership with other newspapers including the Coloradoan.
Some of the communities in question are along Colorado's Front Range.

The newspapers' analysis used data from the US Forest Service. It weighs 65 risk factors including precipitation, vegetation and previous fires. But it also found risk in the age of the people who live in a community, how many people have disabilities and access to escape routes.
The newspapers' analysis doesn't survey Happy Canyon, specifically. It does include data for Castle Pines and shows that community's wildfire hazard is well below that of Paradise.
Other communities in the foothills, like Evergreen and Genesee, are reportedly at much higher risk. The analysis points to vegetation and wind speed as contributing factors.
