Picnic Rock Fire

By  | 

Evacuation alerts were lifted Saturday night for two subdivisions near the Picnic Rock fire.

Cool, wet weather has helped firefighting efforts in Larimer County.

Crews continued to build a fireline around the 87 hundred acre fire. Four hundred firefighters were on the front lines, leading to a 30 percent containment of the fire.

One hundred forty families are still out of their homes but fire crews will assess those evacuation orders around the clock to see when they can return.

Earlier in the week, flames destroyed a house and a garage.
