Pinon Canyon: Under Fire Again

Fire destroyed Mack Louden’s century-old Marty Feeds building in Trinidad on September 15. Louden, a local rancher who has been spearheading opposition to Fort Carson’s proposed expansion of the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site, had insurance on just a portion of the property.

Fire destroyed Mack Louden’s century-old Marty Feeds building in Trinidad on September 15. Louden, a local rancher who has been spearheading opposition to Fort Carson’s proposed expansion of the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site, had insurance on just a portion of the property. As I detailed in this report, the time constraints of his battle with the Army had forced him to shutter his feed store, which he was in the process of selling. Investigators have ruled out arson.

After the blaze, Louden told the Trinidad newspaper: “I was covered by insurance, but I also cancelled much of that insurance two weeks ago. All of our company records were stored in there. If the IRS ever asks us about our records, we’ll have nothing to show them.”
