LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Copter4 flew over the burned hills and mountains in Larimer County on Sunday. The Cameron Peak Fire showed no growth from Saturday into Sunday.
It’s burned more than 102,000 acres with 4% containment. It is the fourth-largest fire in state history.
Crews say as of Friday, 54 buildings were destroyed — 25 of which are homes. Two of those home were primary residences. Many of those home destroyed were in the Monument Gulch Area.
Poudre Valley REA says smoldering in that area and in Pingree Park is preventing their crews from safely working in the area. They say they play to energize lines with a large generator in order for homes that are still operational to have power.
#CameronPeakFire update for Pingree Park and Monument Gulch: The fire is still smoldering in many areas around our easement making it unsafe for our crews to work and complete a full assessment. (1/2)
