Wildland Urban Interface in El Paso and Teller counties

The wildland urban interface is where wildland and residential areas intersect and can include forest or grasslands. Because of that intersection, homes near these areas may be more at-risk for wildfires. Areas in the WUI where there is a higher density of homes may be even more at-risk.
