The Cameron Peak Fire near Red Feather Lakes and in Rocky Mountain National Park grew to 134,559 acres over the weekend – an increase from 131,231 acres that was reported on Friday.
While the fire grew, containment of the blaze did increase from 44 percent to 47 percent. It's also worth noting that firefighters have been able to hold the blaze at Colorado State University Mountain Campus for a third day.
Though high wind speeds ahead of the Sunday cold front didn't drive as much growth as anticipated, spread potential remains quite high as gusty conditions continue.
The northern side of the fire got around 3 to 5 inches of snow on Sunday, which helped the situation. The southern portion of the blaze got trace amounts of snow.
