The Fourmile Canyon fire burning near Boulder, Colo. is now the most destructive wildfire in that state's history. There have been no deaths, but at least 170 homes have been destroyed and countless others damaged along with downed power lines and other infrastructure. As of yet, no one even knows what caused the fire.
