“Starwood Fire” ablaze in Larimer County

A 300-acre wildfire near the Colorado and Wyoming border is about 10 percent contained as of Sunday night, according to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.

There have not been any reports of damage or injuries, but approximately 30 structures are endangered by the fire, according to a Larimer County Sheriff press release.

On Sunday, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office received reports of smoke east of 1000 North County Road 59 and north of 80C (Cherokee Park Road).

On arrival, personnel from Livermore Fire Protection District, United States Forest Service, and Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Services located a wildfire that has developed into the Type 3 blaze “Starwood Fire.”

Dry fuels and 25 mph winds are making containment difficult. The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office issued voluntary evacuations for the blaze on Sunday.

Over 120 personnel were on the ground fighting the fire on Monday, according to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.

Twelve agencies are currently aiding in control efforts, including the United States Forest Service, Poudre Fire Authority, Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control and Loveland Fire Rescue Authority.
