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.

The sheriff’s office said on Saturday they are working on a plan to allow homeowners back inside the perimeter.

The fire was sparked on Aug. 13.
