Hewlett Gulch Fire
An attack is now under way to prevent the damage done by the two recent wildfires from getting worse. It’s a fight to save the reservoir providing drinking water to tens of thousands of people.
With recent heavy rains and more in the forecast for the weekend, the High Park Fire and Hewlett Gulch Fire burn areas are no longer at an extreme risk for fire but have the potential for mudslides and flash flooding.
Flash flooding in Larimer County caused the closure of Highway 14 in the Poudre Canyon due to mudslides on Friday.
A trail in Larimer County is still closed because of the Hewlett Gulch Fire.
