If you are wondering about that smoke west of Fort Collins over the weekend, about 1 ½ acres burned near Davis Ranch Road and Rist Canyon Road on Saturday afternoon.   The Larimer County Sheriff’s Department reported that a shed or barn and a trailer were destroyed in the blaze and nobody was injured. Thanks to the Poudre Fire Authority and Rist Canyon Fire, the blaze is now 100% contained.

Over 160 homes were evacuated during the fire, but evacuations were lifted at approximately 6:35 last night and the evacuation center at Cache La Poudre School in Laporte was closed.  Poudre Fire Authority is estimating damage at $60,000.

As Pete Hanson reported earlier:

The National Weather Service in Denver has issued a Red Flag Warning for all of Northern and Eastern Colorado including Larimer and Weld counties in effect from  1oam Monday morning through 7pm Monday evening.

A reminder for Larimer County residents to register their cell phones for emergency notifications!
