Winds push Colorado wildfire to largest in state history
FORT COLLINS, Colo. — One of two Rocky Mountain wildfires fanned by strong winds has become the largest in Colorado history.
Firefighters expected windy weather to continue into the weekend but said they were well- positioned to keep the Cameron Peak Fire from burning cabins in the mountains west of Fort Collins, Colorado.
About 90 fire engines and 500 firefighters were in place Thursday to protect homes and other buildings along the fire’s especially active eastern flanks, fire operations section chief Paul Delmerico said Thursday.
