CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Just a couple weeks ago, we saw heavy storms all across the Front Range. There was a lot of flash flooding and torrential rains inundated roads all across the metro.  This week has been dramatically different. The heat has been a dry one.  Despite all the rain we've had this season, firefighters are still concerned about high fire danger.  "The more precipitation that falls, generally, we start to see fuels grow," said Eric Hurst, public information officer for South Metro Fire Rescue (SMFR).
