LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – A spot fire at the Cameron Peak Fire showed increased activity west of Pinegree Park on Saturday. The Canyon Lakes Ranger District reports the fire grew toward the YMCA Camp and was less than a mile from Bear Lake Road.

They add the fire is growing eastward toward Glen Haven, and crews were pulled out of the area for safety.

The Cameron Peak Fire is now 60% contained. It has burned more than 207,400 acres.

Structure protection continues for The Retreat, Storm Mountain and Cedar Park.

The forest service also shared that Mother Nature is moving into the area in the form of snow.

While Colorado Highway 14 was reopened between Fort Collins and Walden, Coloradans and visitors are urged to avoid the highway unless absolutely necessary.

There was some confusion about preliminary evacuation orders for Allenspark. The Boulder County Office of Emergency Management clarified to say the mandatory evacuation order was incorrect, but the town remains under pre-evacuation status.

There are now mandatory evacuation orders in Boulder County.

      The YMCA camp and Bear Lake Road are west of Estes Park, nowhere near Pingree Park or the Cameron Peak fire. Please correct before people think the Thompson branch of the East Troublesome fire and the Cameron Peak fire have merged. They have not. Please learn your local geography.
