The Hewlett Gulch Fire Has Grown 500%; Updates and Health Warning’s

I remember just Monday I was telling you that the fire was at 103 acres, then yesterday that number jumped to 982 and today I have to report that it has grown 500% overnight. Put on your rain dance northern Colorado.

Hewlitt Gulch 2

road closuresand updates:

Residents along Hwy 14 between MM 110 to 115 are being asked to get ready to evacuate.

In an update from the offices of Larimer county this morning officials have started pre-planning and coordination with the Livermore and Glacier View Fire Protection Districts in the event the fire moves in that direction.

Road closures are expected along hwy 14. Specifically hwy 14 will be closed this afternoon at the intersection of hwy 287/Ted’s Place. CDOT will also close SH 14 eastbound traffic to Stove Prairie Campground.

Health warning:

If you can see or smell smoke, children, elderly, pregnant women, and people with pre-existing respiratory conditions should stay inside with the windows and doors closed. If it is hot outside, run an air conditioner if you have one, but keep the fresh-air intake closed and the filter clean to prevent outdoor smoke from getting inside. If you do not have an air conditioner and it is too warm to stay inside with the windows closed, seek shelter elsewhere.
