At an entrance to Interstate Highway 70 (I-70), a member of the Glenwood Springs Police Department brief members of the 220th Military Police (MP) Company, Colorado Army National Guard (COARNG) on the Coal Seam Fires. The 220th MP will set up security access control points along the perimeter including I-70. The Coal Seam Fire started sometime in the mid-1970s as an underground fire burned along a rich vein of coal. Occassionally the fire breaks through to the surface. At this time it had burned 7,300 acres, damaged an estimated 40 structures, and caused the evacuation of 2,000 residents

U.S. National Archives

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
