Cameron Peak fire continues to spread, destroy more structures as it becomes Colorado’s 3rd largest blaze
Officials said the fire grew Saturday by about 20,000 acres when winds reaching 60 mph caused the blaze to jump over fire lines. More structures were destroyed.
2018 was the second worst year for wildfire on record in Colorado, adding 475,803 acres statewide to burn scars at risk for destructive post-fire flooding. Even a quarter-inch of rain could spell disaster.
