The High Park Fire has consumed over 36,000 acres, and is still reported at 0% containment.  The shelter has been moved from Cache la Poudre Middle School in Laporte, to the Ranch at I-25 and Crossroads Blvd.

According to a statement from the Larimer County Sheriff’s Department:

  • The fire may have been caused by lightning.
  • The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Regional Air Quality Council have issued an Action Day Alert for fine particulates until 4 p.m. Monday, perhaps later.

The Larimer Humane Society still has room for cats,  small mammals and farm animals displaced by the fire, but are at capacity for dogs. Dogs should instead be taken to Advanced Animal Care of Colorado, at 1530 Riverside Ave. in Fort Collins.
