Durango 416 Fire – Colorado Litigation Lawyers

416 Fire Near Durango - Burg Simpson

The Durango “416 Fire” is the sixth-largest wildfire in the history of Colorado, burning over 54,000 acres of public and private land, forcing residents to evacuate their homes, and negatively impacting local businesses by closing them down or depriving them of revenue.  Following the 416 Fire, devastating flooding and mudslides have further impacted the Durango and Silverton communities.

The nationally recognized Colorado-based law firm of Burg Simpson and the Durango law firm of Duthie Savastano Brungard, have joined together to assist community members harmed by the 416 Fire.  These two firms combine decades of experience litigating complex cases in Colorado courts and are intricately aware of the nuances of Colorado law.

Led by Thomas W. Henderson, Peter W. Burg, and David K. TeSelle of Burg Simpson, along with Bobby Duthie and Anthony Savastano of Duthie Savastano Brungard, our attorneys are dedicated to holding those responsible for the 416 Fire accountable.  Indeed, both Mr. Henderson and Mr. Burg have experience handling cases for forest fire victims in Colorado, recovering tens of millions of dollars in damages, while Duthie Savastano Brungard has served southwest Colorado’s legal needs for generations.  Together, our attorneys look forward to representing and providing a local voice to those people and businesses affected by the 416 Fire.

“There’s really no doubt in our minds that the train started the fire and needs to be held accountable,” said Thomas Henderson in an interview with KRQE.
