For Residents in the Area

  • No evacuations have been ordered for the Hewlett Fire.  Pre-notifications were sent to residents along Highway 14 from mile marker 111 to 115 to be prepared to evacuate if necessary.
  • If an evacuation is ordered, residents will be notified as quickly as possible.
  • Residents should make sure that their emergency contact information is updated at and that their numbers are not blocked to receive calls.
  • Residents in the affected area should be prepared to evacuate immediately.  They should have important documents, medications, eyeglasses, dentures, etc. ready to go.  Pets should be kept close so you don’t have to search for them when it’s time to go.
  • If you feel uncomfortable at all you should leave.  Don’t wait for an emergency notification if you feel threatened.  Let someone outside the area know where you are.
  • Put a white towel on your front door to alert firefighters that you have evacuated.  You can also call Larimer County Emergency Communications at 416-1985 to let them know you have left.

The Hewlett Gulch Trail, Greyrock Trail, and the area surrounding the trails are closed. Online updates are available, or for recorded information, you can call the Hewlett Fire hotline at 970-498-1030.
