Fascinating story! It happened before we moved to Colorado.

Hi Julie,

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I learned a lot writing the article. I was here in Denver during that time, but it was so long ago, I completely forgot about the fire.

All the best,

I was a senior in my last semester at the University of Colorado at Boulder. That Sunday (November 25th), my father, who was an airline pilot, and I arrived at Stapleton sometime in the early to mid-afternoon. We had been out in Los Angeles for the Thanksgiving and were returning home at the end of the weekend.The fire was directly observable from the concourse once we had gotten off the plane, and I remember standing there and just watching it rage for a few minutes.

Thanks for sharing your memories of the fire Peter. I was actually working for United Airlines at the time and also remember seeing the flames from the terminal. Hopefully this will never happen at DIA.
