The sheriff is about to release the after-action report on the Black Forest fire.

That will happen at a news conference Tuesday morning.

The report comes nearly one year to the day that the Black Forest fire broke out.

It will be the first time we hear from the sheriff's office about what they say were their strengths and challenges during the fire last year.

We'll also get an update of the investigation into the cause of the fire.

The Black Forest Fire Board hired an independent investigator to write their report about the fire. That was released in February.

At the time, Sheriff Maketa said "I think they did a masterful job of taking certain facts and adding fiction."

We'll let you know what's in the new report as soon as the information is available.
