LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)– The Cameron Peak Fire hasn’t grown since snow fell over the weekend. The largest wildfire in Colorado history has burned 208,663 acres and remains 64% contained.

Firefighters are anticipating the warmer temperatures because the frigid weather caused the water used by crews to freeze. But the warmer temperatures also bring risk of fueling the fire again.

Some voluntary evacuations have been lifted for the Cameron Peak Fire and East Troublesome Fire, including Highway 7 to Allenspark.

Crews are focusing on the southwestern edge of the fire near Pingree Park and Glen Haven.
