The Hewlett Fire northwest of Fort Collins in the Poudre Canyon was 94 percent contained as of last night. Authorities  expect to have the fire fully contained by tonight (Tuesday, 5/22). The U.S. Attorney’s Office says a camper started the fire with an outdoor stove in the Roosevelt National Forest and was unable to stamp it out.

The costs of fighting the fire have reached about $3.2 million.

Thanks to Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forests / Pawnee National Grassland for the latest updates.

Everyone is reminded that there is still fire, firefighters and firefighting equipment in the area.  Drive slowly; watch out. Warming weather today is likely to make hot spots of the fire put up smoke.
