On Saturday, the Cameron Peak Fire grew to 199,356 acres. The fire managers said that it did not become as bad as they thought it would become since they faced high winds throughout the day.
About 62% of the region has been affected since the fire outbreak. The firefighters worked during the day to protect the property in the area from Glen Haven to Masonville along the southern flank of the fire.
A spot fire struck the east of County Road 27 and burned south toward Masonville during the day, although the eastern part of the fire moved towards the southeast.
Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith said during an evening Facebook update that Property loss was observed in the Miller Creek area in the upper end of the Retreat.
He further adds that he is not aware of the amount of the property loss that might have occurred on Storm Mountain but says that he is certain that there might have been some damage.
The other areas where the loss of the property and belongings has not been confirmed yet include Otter Road and Redstone Canyon added Smith.
Even though he is not certain about how long it will take to identify the damage and assess it, he assures that his team, including him, will be working as fast as they can.
It is expected that the speed of winds might reduce, with 10-15 mph up to 20 mph wind blows expected on the eastern edge of the fire.
The update says that firemen are likely to take advantage of this change in weather to utilize fire suspension methods. Yet, until the fire is sustained, it will remain a point of concern and risk.
