Photos: Flagstaff fire near Boulder

As we reported earlier today, crews fighting the Flagstaff fire near Boulder held their own against the blaze, preventing it from getting out of control on the scale of the High Park fire outside Fort Collins or Colorado Springs' incredibly destructive Waldo Canyon fire.

Our Brandon Marshall was in Boulder yesterday afternoon to capture the scene. Check out a gallery of his photos below.
