The Woodland Heights Fire that started yesterday morning in Estes Park has burned approximately 20 acres and destroyed 20 homes; and is now being reported as 75% contained. The fire is burning near the Beaver Meadows Entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park, but has not moved inside park boundaries.

There was an evacuation ordered from High Drive west to the Rocky Mountain National Park border and that evacuation order is still in place. Evacuees have been directed to the Estes Park High School at 1600 Manford Avenue where a citizen's briefing will be held at 11:00 a.m. and the media will be addressed afterward.

The fire is currently 75 percent contained and the Estes Park Fire Chief is reassessing the containment today. The fire crew hit this fire hard and gained a lot of control but citizens should be aware that the fire is still burning and they need to be vigilant. Crews are doing mop up operations and worked on hot spots throughout the night. Estes Park Light and Power is working on power lines and service to the evacuated area at this time. Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.
