Two summer cabins in Red Feather Lakes were destroyed by fire early yesterday morning.  Residents were fortunate that the fire didn’t spread further.   367 of those residents had to evacuated in Fox Acres and  along portions of County Road 67J. Winds gusting up to 50 to 60 miles-per-hour created 12 spot fires.

A large propane tank near one of the cabins exploded in the fire and went through a building across the street. The building, owned by the Red Feather Lakes Property Owners Association, sustained heavy damage from the propane tank.

The Red Feather, Crystal Lakes, Livermore and Glacier View volunteer fire departments  brought the fire under control quickly averting what would have been a major incident for Red Feather Lakes. Residents who had been directed to an evacuation center in Livermore were allowed to return to their homes a short time later. There were no injuries.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
