The Hayman fire was a forest fire that started 95 miles (153 km) southwest of Denver, Colorado and 35 miles (56 km) northwest of Colorado Springs on June 8, 2002, and became the largest of the Colorado wildfires in the state's recorded history. Hundreds of firefighters fought the fast-moving fire, which caused nearly $40 million in firefighting costs, burned 133 homes, 138,114 acres, and forced the evacuation of 5,340 people. Smoke could be seen and smelled across the state from Vail, 108 miles (174 km) northwest, to Burlington, 188 miles (303 km) east, and from Broomfield, 50 miles (80 km) north, to Walsenburg, 130 miles (210 km) south. The fire wasn't contained until July 2, 2002 and was finally brought under control on July 18, 2002. The cause of the wildfire was found to be arson.

  • The Hayman fire was a forest fire that started 95 miles (153 km) southwest of Denver, Colorado and 35 miles (56 km) northwest of Colorado Springs on June 8, 2002, and became the largest of the Colorado wildfires in the state's recorded history. Hundreds of firefighters fought the fast-moving fire, which caused nearly $40 million in firefighting costs, burned 133 homes, 138,114 acres, and forced the evacuation of 5,340 people. Smoke could be seen and smelled across the state from Vail, 108 miles (174 km) northwest, to Burlington, 188 miles (303 km) east, and from Broomfield, 50 miles (80 km) north, to Walsenburg, 130 miles (210 km) south. The fire wasn't contained until July 2, 2002 and was finally brought under control on July 18, 2002. The cause of the wildfire was found to be arson. When then-Governor Bill Owens responded to a reporter’s question following an aerial tour of the fires ("What does it look like up there?"), Owens said "It looks as if all of Colorado is burning today." Many western slope residents blamed Owens for driving away tourists with the press's truncated version of the quote ("All of Colorado is burning.") The Hayman fire was named for a mining ghost town near Tappan Gulch.
  • Das Hayman-Feuer bezeichnet einen mehr als drei Wochen wütenden Waldbrand im US-Bundesstaat Colorado im Jahre 2002. Durch ein illegales Lagerfeuer ausgelöst, wütete es im Juni 2002 im Pike-Nationalforst zwischen Denver und Colorado Springs und zerstörte eine Fläche von rund 55.000 Hektar. Der Waldbrand wurde am 8. Juni 2002 durch ein illegales Lagerfeuer ausgelöst und breitete sich nach langer Dürreperiode und unter immer wieder auffrischenden Winden rasch aus. Als Ursprung wurde die Geisterstadt Hayman ausgemacht, nach der das Feuer schließlich benannt wurde. Es richtete einen Schaden von rund 40 Mio. US-Dollar an, zerstörte 133 Häuser und erforderte die Umsiedlung von mehr als 5.000 Menschen, nachdem zuvor bereits rund 40.000 Menschen von den Behörden aufgefordert worden waren, sich für eine solche bereitzuhalten. Den Vororten von Denver näherte sich das Feuer auf bis zu 15 Kilometer. Der verheerendste Waldbrand Colorados wurde am 2. Juli 2002 unter Kontrolle gebracht.
