High Park Fire Burning West of Fort Collins/Loveland [PICTURES]

Larimer County Fire 06-09-2012
Beano, 99.9 The Point

So, I went on my back patio this morning to enjoy a little sunshine. When I looked to the west I saw this new plume of smoke coming from the mountains.

Great, ANOTHER fire in Larimer County.

According to 9News:

The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a call about a single plume of smoke first spotted at around 6 a.m. Saturday.

The call came from the area of Buckhorn Road and Cougar Drive in Larimer County.

Just after 10:30Am, Poudre Fire Authority tweeted that the fire has grown to over 10 acres in the area of High Park and Paradise Park in the Roosevelt National Forest.

Let’s hope this is another fire that firefighters can get control of quickly.

***UPDATE*** 11:45AM

It looks like this is being called the High Park Fire and is now 40-50 acres according to the Larimer Sheriff. They also say 43 evacuation notices were sent to Paradise Park Road, Moose Horn Lane, Magic Lane and Spencer Mountain Road. An evacuation center is being set up at Cache La Poudre Middle School.

Here are a few pictures from my backyard here in Windsor.
