High Park Fire Evacuees Getting Some Details on Home Loss

  • Grace Hood has an update from Monday morning's citizen briefing for those evacuated by the High Park Fire.

Hundreds of Firefighters are struggling to contain an out of control wildfire that’s scorched more than 37,000 acres northwest of Fort Collins.

Today Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith said that more than 100 structures in three subdivisions have been damaged or destroyed. But the details about which homes have been affected are slow to emerge.

The trickle of information is leading to an agonizing wait for High Park Fire evacuees. KUNC’s Grace Hood has more.
