Largest Fire in Colorado State History Continues to Burn in Rocky Mountain Foothills

Colorado’s Cameron Peak Fire: What is now the largest wildfire in Colorado state history, the Cameron Peak Fire, retreated slightly on Sunday. The stability is being attributed to cooler temperatures and a bit of precipitation. This fire has consumed over 203,000 acres as it continues to tear through land in the foothills of Northern Colorado, near Fort Collins and Loveland. As of Monday, the blaze is 62% contained. Nearly 1,500 firefighters are going to battle against the fire.
