Strong winds and dry conditions continue to stoke the Cameron Peak Fire.
In a recent announcement, fire officials took to Facebook to let the public know that crews were pulled from Miller Creek, The Retreat, and Storm Mountain areas due to "extreme fire activity." Firefighters on the scene reported that the fire has been "moving very fast."
Another virtual meeting as been scheduled for Friday night at 7:30 to update the community, to be held on Facebook. Many are expecting the fire's size to be reported at larger than the 167,153 acres that was announced on Friday morning. Containment was last listed as 56 percent.
US 34 through Big Thompson Canyon was closed to thru-traffic from Mall Road in Estes Park to east of the Dam Store. This closure was put in place to allow for emergency evacuations of residents.
