Two people are missing — and presumed dead — after Marshall fire, Boulder County authorities now say

Fire destroyed at least 991 homes


Update: at a Jan. 2 press release, one of the three missing individuals was reported to have been found, according to Boulder County authorities. 

Three people are missing — and presumed dead — after the Marshall fire swept through Boulder County, authorities said Saturday, a day after they said all missing persons had been accounted for and that no one had died in the disaster.

“We unfortunately believe these are going to turn into recovery cases,” Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle said at a news conference Saturday. “The structures where these folks would be are completely destroyed.”

Jennifer Churchill, a spokeswoman for the Boulder Office of Emergency Management, declined to release the identities of the three missing people.
