The area of 86th Avenue and Fenton Street near Highway 36 and 88th Avenue was where the evacuations were taking place. That’s close to the border between Arvada and Westminster.

Officers were going house to house asking people to evacuate. The evacuations were lifted once the fire was brought under control.
