High Park

Firefighters have been taking the heat for a while now and they were rewarded Sunday by achieving full-containment of the High Park fire. We say a big “CONGRATULATIONS!” and express deep gratitude to all fire workers involved. And we know there’s still work to be done.

The High Park Fire is 100% contained at 87,284 acres. A Type 3 management team, led by Ken Paul, assumed responsibility for the fire yesterday. That team is based at CSU’s Pingree Park campus.

It should be noted that “containment” means that a containment line exists around the fire, which fire managers believe will hold the fire within the perimeter. “Control” means that the fire is actually out which, on a fire of this magnitude, typically requires an act of nature such as prolonged rain or snowfall.

Thank you to all who have called to check on us regarding the High Park Fire west of Fort Collins. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who has been touched by this tragedy.

Fortunately for the ranch the fire is not near and there is currently no cause for alarm. There was some haze from the smoke this morning but it has cleared significantly.
