Colorado Springs have cracked down on trespassing  in an area hit by the Waldo Canyon fire.

Police say they issued seven tickets for trespassing Saturday afternoon to people who had gone for a look at the now-destroyed Flying W Ranch. The ranch was turned to cinders June 26 when the Waldo Canyon Fire blow-torched northwestern Colorado Springs, destroying 346 homes and killing two people.

Since the fire, police have kept up patrols in the area, to discourage looters and keep the curious off of private property.

Police say the ranch was clearly marked “no trespassing.”

“The parties were served a criminal summons and released,” police said in a news release.
