First The Hewlett Fire, then the Stuart Hole Fire, and now this. According to The Coloradoan, firefighters are fighting yet another new wildfire northwest of Fort Collins. But Larimer County Emergency Information says that air attack resources have helped get this fire under control.

It’s shaping up to be a looooong summer for our brave firefighters.

This one is (was?) called The Camman Fire and is burning in the Poudre Canyon northwest of Fort Collins (South of Highway 14 near the Cache La Poudre Wilderness and the Pingree Park). It was estimated at 3-4 acres and is presumed to have been started by lightning.

According to Larimer County Emergency Information,

It sounds like the deployment of air attack resources from Stuart Hole to this fire have done the trick. They are withdrawing and will let ground crews do the mop up. They will be on the line well into evening however and possibly into tomorrow. But in the absence of any other developments, this will be the last report on the Camman Fire.

Crisis averted! Nice work firefighters.

***UPDATE*** (6/7/12, 6:32pm)

At 6pm, Canyon Lakes RD tweeted this:

#CammanFire 80 percent contain. 40 firefighters will stay at the fire tonight.
