Brush Fire on Mary's Lake Road 2/18/16

Estes Valley Fire crews responded to a 1/2 acre brush fire at 5:30 am this morning on Mary's Lake Road. 10 condominiums were threatened and evacuated. Fire crews were fighting 100 mph winds and were able to control and extinguish the fire in about one hour. Mutual aid from Allenspark Fire Protection District, Glen Haven Area Volunteer Fire Department, RMNP, and Larimer County were originally requested but later cancelled. The fire cause is still under investigation, but sparks from arcing power lines are suspected.

Red Flag Warning


The Estes Valley Fire Protection District will now display a red flag on the Smokey fire danger sign at 901 N Saint Vrain Ave when there is a Red Flag Warning in our area.   A Red Flag Warning means that conditions are ideal for wildland fire combustion and rapid spread.  This warning is posted when critical fire weather conditions are either occurring or imminent.  Conditions that contribute to a Red Flag Warning are dry vegetation, low humidity, and high winds over a period of time.
