Residents of Fort Collins came out in droves to thank over 2,300 firefighters battling the High Park Fire, now estimated at 83,205 acres with 45 percent containment.  The current cost of the fire to date is estimated at $29.6 million dollars.

248 homes have been destroyed to date. 57 additional homes were lost in the Glacier View/Hewlett Gulch area.

There are 2,037 fire personnel and that number will increase as additional resources arrive.  In addition there are 13 Type 1 hand crews, 21 Type 2 hand crews, 170 engines, 12 dozers and 26 water tenders.  Air Resources include 7 Type I helicopters, 3 Type II helicopters, 9 Type III helicopters, 5 heavy air tankers, 1 Type II helicopter with a radiometric imaging system attached and fixed wing support aircraft.

Fire officials ordered a pre-evacuation notice to Bonner Peak Subdivision, including Springs Ranch Rd.  The pre-evacuation is also for County Road 74E from the junction of Hwy 287, west to include County Road 37, north to include County Road 76H, east to Hwy 287 and south to County Road 74E.  All residents need to be prepared to evacuate at a moment’s notice.

Today firefighters will continue to strengthen the line on the north, monitor areas with structures and other areas throughout, staff the southwest portion heavily, and holding on to what we’ve got.
