Estes Park Fire Protection District Urges Caution
Wildfire season on the Front Range runs year round. In the past week there have been three wildfires in Boulder and Larimer Counties. There was also a small grass fire in the Glen Haven area. Despite the cool night temperatures and occasional moisture the winds quickly dry out fine fuels, making them susceptible to fire starts. March has not yet brought much moisture to the lower elevations of the Front Range so conditions are already dry to begin with.
Residents are urged to be very careful with fires or any other ignition source.
