Within the last hour we have received information that the U.S. Forest Service has issued a citation to James J. Weber of Fort Collins for starting the Hewlett Fire.  Weber faces a $300 fine plus a $25 processing fee.  The Forest Service will also pursue Weber for restitution.

According to U.S. Forest Service investigators, Weber was camping on the Hewlett Gulch trail.  While camping he used a camp stove which uses alcohol.  On Monday, May 14, 2012, the camp stove Weber was using started the Hewlett Gulch Fire.  Weber attempted to stomp out the fire, but was unsuccessful.  He fled as the fire spread.  Weber later reported that he started the fire to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.  There is no cell service at the location of the origin of the fire.
