High Park Fire 100% Contained.

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.

  • Here’s a July 1 2012 screenshot from Inciweb, with SMC marked on the top map.  Click through for details:

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