@CodyCrouch, TwitPic

The Stuart Hole Fire is burning approximately 40 miles northwest of Fort Collins on private land in a sparsely populated area. The size of the fire is currently estimated at about 200 acres.  Approximately 100 firefighters are expected to be working the fire by this evening. Some evacuations have been ordered and at least one structure has been burned, while others are threatened as the fire grows.

A Single Engine Air Tanker and Type 3 helicopter are on scene.  An Air Attack control plane has been ordered. 13 homes have been evacuated in the Boxer Ranch Subdivision on Boxer Ranch Road.  The evacuation center is the Livermore Community Hall located at 1985 West CR74E, approximately one and half miles west of the Forks. Large animals can be taken to The Ranch at the Larimer County Fairgrounds.

Pre-evacuation notices remain in place for residents north and south of CR82E from CR80C and CR67J including Cherokee Meadows Road.

Emphasis at this time is structure protection.  The fire is burning in grass and ponderosa pine. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.

We will continue to share information as it becomes available on the Stuart Hole Fire.
