The High Park wildfire quadrupled it's size overnight. Click on the image to view full size.
The US Forest Service published the latest data on the size of the High Park fire at 06:52AM and I immediately turned it into a map showing the huge increase in this uncontrolled wildfire. This fire has the potential for enormous damage due to the amount of development and infrastructure in the mountains west of Fort Collins and along the Colorado Highway 14 corridor. To make it even worse, Colorado is competing with fires in other states for scarce fire-fighting resources.
