All property owners have been notified of their damage — Our thoughts are with them.
The Sept. 12 official report has the fire still at 102,596 Acres.
Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith said this in a press release:
"The snow was certainly welcome and made an impact on the fire, but it also slowed the assessment process. Many people worked very hard to access these areas, complete assessments, and get word to the owners with damage as quickly as possible. I can only imagine how devastating the loss of a home or property to wildfire must be. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.”
