***3:15pm UPDATE***

According to the Coloradoan, at least 16 homes have been destroyed in what they are calling the “Woodland Heights Fire”.  20-acres have been lost so far and everyone within a 1-mile radius is being evacuated.

The fire is burning entirely in the Estes Park town limits, near the Beaver Meadows Entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park.

As if we haven’t already gotten enough bad fire news today, there is a new wildfire burning in Estes Park, Colorado. According to the Denver Post, firefighters are battling the blaze that started at a cabin, and then spread to two nearby buildings, as well as grass and pine trees.

The structure fire was first reported at 12:03 p.m. on the west side of Estes Park across from the Rocky Mountain National Park Beaver Meadows entrance on the 1600 block of High Drive, authorities said.

There hasn’t been any confirmed number of acres burned yet, nor a confirmation of how many structures have burned. Evacuations have already started as well, but I haven’t found details on exactly where those are located.

There are smoke plumes visible from town and air support is already on its way to help battle the blaze.

Let’s hope this one doesn’t get too out of hand and can be contained quickly, I don’t know how much thinner our fire resources can stretch.
