High Park Fire in Larimer County now up to 36,000 acres burned – The Denver Post
The wind has shifted, forcing the massive High Park fire to blow back on itself, at least northwest of Horsetooth Reservoir.
“We are making good progress and in some cases, the fire has died down and moderated,” Larimer County executive officer Nick Christensen said this afternoon at a briefing.
However, there are new concerns about flame activity and movement in the northeast corner of the fire, near where the Hewlett fire burned, moving toward the Bonner Peaks subdivision and the large Glacier View neighborhood.
“We have helicopters making water drops and additional crews because of concerns we have up there,” Christensen said.
There are no pre-evacuation notifications for Glacier View, but fire commanders
