Fire crews from across the state of Colorado are regrouping at Conifer High School in Jefferson County. They are preparing to take on the wildfire again today.
Firefighters from El Paso County Fire Department and the Colorado Springs Fire Department are on scene offering their services. Federal crews from other states were also dispatched to the fire Tuesday.
Coming into Wednesday morning, the Lower North Fork Wildfire was yet to have any kind of containment. Fire crews believe they are close to establishing a perimeter around the 5,000 acre fire, however.
The firefighters were inundated with donations and gifts Tuesday afternoon, and said they were extremely grateful. They did ask people to stop bringing things to the high school.
FEMA funding has been approved to pay for 75 percent of the firefighting costs.
