The High Park Fire near Fort Collins continues to grow but firefighters on the ground have gained some headway on the fire. The fire has now reached 43,372, or about 68 square miles and is visible from space. NASA published a satellite picture taken on Sunday of the fire and the plume of smoke that extended into Wyoming and Nebraska. To date the High Park Fire has cost $3,000,000 to fight and there are 684 people on the ground. The Colorado National Guard is assisting with three Black Hawk helicopters and additional aircrews are on their way from the Kansas and Nebraska National Guards. The Grand Junction Fire Department has sent three personnel and a brush fire truck to assist in firefighting efforts. So far, 10% of the fire has been contained but it is still expanding and soon will enter an area where more than 70% of the trees have been victim to pine beetles.
