Hayman Fire

The Hayman Fire was a forest fire started on June 8, 2002, 35 miles northwest of Colorado Springs, Colorado and 22 miles southwest of Denver and became the largest wildfire in the state's recorded history at over 138,114 acres. Hundreds of firefighters fought the fast-moving fire, which caused nearly $40 million in firefighting costs, burned 133 homes, 138,114 acres, forced the evacuation of 5,340 people. Smoke could be seen and smelled across the state from Vail, 55 miles northwest, to Burlington, 188 miles east, from Broomfield, 50 miles north, to Walsenburg, 130 miles south; the Hayman Fire burned from June 8, 2002, until it was classified as contained 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, 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 The Hayman Fire was named for a mining ghost town near Tappan Gulch.

The fire resulted directly in the death of one civilian, $39.1 million in suppression costs, total private property losses valued at $40.4 million, indirectly led to the death of five firefighters. Overall, 600 structures were burned in the fire including 133 homes, 1 commercial building and 466 outbuildings. While the fire burned, record amounts of particulate matter were measured in the air; as a result of the fire, flooding in the burn area increased. Many roads and bridges in the area were washed out; this included the main highway that runs through the area. Other indirect destruction included sediment runoff into a reservoir, used as a water source for Denver; the removal of this sediment cost $25 million. Most of the burn area is inside of the Pike National Forest; the fire caused the closure of a large part of the national forest land as well as nearby Eleven Mile State Park and Spinney State Park. Tourism saw a sharp decline in the area and it is estimated that local businesses lost 50% of their seasonal revenues as a result of the fire-induced closures.

Ann Dow, 50, suffered a fatal asthma attack on the evening of June 10, 2002 when heavy smoke from the fire drifted over the Dows' home south of Florissant. She lapsed into unconsciousness and paramedics could not revive her, her death certificate lists the cause as "acute asthma attack due to or as a consequence of smoke inhalation." Five firefighters died from injuries sustained from a June 21, 2002 traffic accident en route to the Hayman fire from Oregon: Zach Zigich, Retha Shirley, Jacob Martindale, Danial Rama, Bart Bailey. They are listed in the memorial to fallen firefighters on the Wildland Firefighter Foundation's website. A forestry technician with the U. S. Forest Service, Terry Barton, set the fire in a campfire ring during a total burn ban triggered by a National Weather Service red flag warning. Barton's claim that she was attempting to burn a letter from her estranged husband was disputed by one of her teenage daughters who testified that a psychology teacher had told Ms. Barton to write her feelings in a letter and burn it.

Many locals believe she set the fire on purpose so she could stay home and fight a local Colorado fire instead of being called to fight fires in other states, such as Arizona or California. This would enable her to be with her kids that summer. According to radio talk show host Glenn Sacks, investigators speculated that Barton started the fire so she could be a hero for putting it out and saving the forest; the fire spread out of the campfire ring and torched over 138,000 acres and burned across four different counties. A federal grand jury indicted Barton on four felony counts of arson. Barton pleaded guilty to two charges: setting fire to federal forest land and lying to investigators and was given a six-year sentence in federal prison. U. S. District Judge Richard Matsch refused, however, to impose the $14 million restitution asked for by prosecutors, saying he would not sentence her to a "life of poverty." Additionally, the State of Colorado sentenced Barton to 12 years in prison to run concurrently with the 6-year federal sentence.

The state sentence was overturned on appeal, however, on grounds that the presiding judge had "the appearance of prejudice" because smoke from the fire had motivated him to voluntarily leave his home for one night. In March 2008, Barton was re-sentenced by a different judge to 15 years of probation and 1,000 hours community service. Several insurance companies filed a $7 million suit against the government in the fall of 2008, claiming that Barton was negligent in her duties. In November, Judge Wiley Daniel ruled that the government was not responsible for Barton's actions because she was acting as an angry spouse and not as a government worker. In August 2018, Barton's sentence was extended another 15 years in the form of unsupervised probation. Judge William Brian ordered that Barton continue to make payments toward the $14.5 million in restitution she owed as of the 2018 re-sentencing. The judge ordered that Barton get a full-time job.
