JULY 1 – 2012 — The FlagstaffFire near Boulder is contained, and the gigantic High Park Fire near Fort Collins, which consumed at least 259 homes and killed 1 person, is now contained as well. Pretty impressive job by the firefighters, I find. Shambhala Mountain Center, only 4 miles from the final fire perimeter, was luckily spared. (My June 12 original blogpost on this fire, 3 days after it started, was on SMC’s proximity to the fire, see HERE). Hot spots within the fire may continue to smolther for weeks, or even months to come.

Note: Inciweb is slow on updating. If you’re near the fire, Twitter is much better.
