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.
