Ominous plumes of smoke rise at the start of the wild land fire north of Cedaredge last Friday.
J.D. TenNapel, 15, suffered second-degree burns last Friday as he drove an ATV through his family's rural neighborhood warning others of a wildland fire as flames around him rapidly spread and intensified.
J.D.'s injuries were the only ones sustained in the 39-acre blaze that blackened piñon/juniper woodland along Surface Creek Road between Timothy and T75 roads.
