I just received an email from Larimer County that ALL remaining residents of Glacier View Meadows must evacuate. This includes Gates 1-8, including roads north of hwy 74E. Due to increased winds causing several spot fires, 612 notifications were sent out at 3:15pm. Please be safe everyone.

GVM Community Meeting
Day 12. On June 20, 2012 7pm ~200+ residents of Glacier View Meadows and surrounding communities were updated by the Larimer County Sheriff, our Fire Chief, US Forest Service fire managers and the Red Cross. Using the latest fire map, strategic operations were discussed emphasizing the north and west flanks. It was hoped that the evacuations would be lifted in days not weeks. Today electricity was restored to filings 9-11.
