It has now been a week since the fire increased in acreage. A week ago, the snow event brought the dramatic surge in the fire to a halt, and since then, the firefighters have been able to work on the fire edge along a significant portion of the perimeter. In particular, the area south of Highway 14 and along the eastern perimeter where the fire has met or is close to the High Park Fire regrowth is considered to be increasingly stable. This has allowed for the cancellation of the voluntary evacuation status for Glacier View, the neighborhood immediately to our east and directly north of that edge. This is good news, and the firefighters indicated that they’re hoping for containment in that area in the coming days.
