Rainbow Over Boulder Flagstaff Fire

A rain storm came through about 7 PM. At a bit after 8 pm, I noticed a faint rainbow hanging to the left over the burnt mountain side
The rain seems to have helped put the fire out.  I did not see any more crown fires!

Boulder Flagstaff Fire

6:03 PM View of the #flagstaff (that's the twitter hashtag) fire. It looks more contained from this side relative to an hour ago.  A thunderstorm passed overhead about 2:30 here.  Rumor has it that it was lightning from this thunderstorm that started the fire.

The black smudge above the mountain at the right is an air tanker.
