A Fire on the Front Range has already damaged or destroyed 100 homes and claimed one life. The High Park Fire west of Fort Collins has grown to 43,433 acres only three days after it started. The firefighting force is expected to grow to more than 600 firefighters by tomorrow. The National Guard is also assisting in firefighting efforts with two Black Hawk Helicopters. The fire is being fueled by beetle killed trees and is spreading as fast as 40 feet per minute with flames seen as high as 300 feet. More than 2,600 evacuation notices have been sent out for residents in the area of the fire, and Colorado State University has evacuated and moved as much research equipment as they could due to the proximity of the fire. It is currently zero percent contained, but fire crews are attempting to get ahead of the fast moving fire, which has already moved into the area burned by the Hewlett Gulch Fire last month.
