A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 9pm Wednesday. Heavy rain is possible throughout the day, and this combined with already saturated soils could lead to further flash flood problems both near and away from all area burn scars. Stay with 11 News throughout the day for weather updates.
Officials managing the firefighters at the 89-hundred-acre Picnic Rock fire west of Fort Collins say they have reached 100 percent containment of the blaze that was started more than a week ago.
Officials say the blaze destroyed one home and one garage -- and at its peak had forced residents of about 140 homes to flee.
Being contained means firefighters have established a fire line all the way around the perimeter of the burned area.
Officials also say they are estimating the cost at up to two-point-eight (M) million dollars.
Authorities still may file charges against a couple who lit a fire in their yard -- and watched it escape in front of strong winds.
