Mandatory evacuations ordered due to fire northwest of Fort Collins

9:55 pm update: Overnight plan in place

Two crews and two division supervisors will remain on stage with the County Road 21 Fire, while all other Poudre Fire Authority crews will be released overnight.

According to PFA, winds died down, which allowed crews more access to the fire area. The fire has not significantly grown since our last update and is still estimated to be around 600 acres.

Overnight crews will be patrolling the fire line checking for hot spots and mop up.

The fire area will be fully staffed Friday morning with fresh resources as crews continue working toward 100% containment, per PFA.

The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office will resume communications at 7 am Friday.

9:30 pm update: Evacuations downgraded in two areas.

Fire officials downgraded a portion of two different evacuation areas late Thursday night.

Residents living in the area between Larimer County Road 66, south along Larimer County Road 21 to Larimer County Road 56 and west to Larimer County Road 21C have been downgraded to voluntary evacuations. That area includes much of the fire’s eastern portion.

Authorities recommended that those returning home should use caution and watch for fire personnel in their area.
