Remembering the Storm King 14
Today marks the 21st anniversary of the deadly wildfire on Storm King Mountain outside Glenwood Springs, where 14 federal wildland firefighters perished on July 6, 1994.
Following the tragedy, residents of Glenwood Springs made a pledge that this city would never forget the sacrifice made by those brave souls.
We renewed that pledge with a series of stories on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Storm King Fire last summer. Again, we pay tribute to those who became known as the Storm King 14 and their families.
In remembrance: Kathi Beck, Tamera Bickett, Scott Blecha, Levi Brinkley, Robert Browning, Doug Dunbar, Terri Hagen, Bonnie Holtby, Rob Johnson, Jon Kelso, Don Mackey, Roger Roth, Jim Thrash, Richard Tyler.

The family of Rosie Ferrin has worked to clean up and make safe again the old schoolhouse in downtown New Castle. Ferrin died this summer and had owned the building that included classrooms turned into apartments for years.
