According to The Denver Post, more residents of the area around the Cold Springs fire outside Nederland, Colorado could be evacuated today [Sunday, July 10] as the blaze, which has grown to 331 acres, threatens countless homes in the surrounding area.
Boulder officials are sending pre-evacuation notifications to residents in a large area south of zone, where hundreds of Boulder County residents were evacuated Saturday as firefighters battled the fire.
The pre-evacuation notice includes residents on Sugarloaf Road, Lost Angel Road, Owl Creek Road, Old Townsite Road, Labelle Road, South Peak Road and Sugarloaf Mountain Road, according to the Daily Camera.
Wind is expected to pick up between noon and 2 p.m., and the weather is hot and dry, increasing the chance the fire will spread.
Firefighters continued to protect homes from the fire through the night, and at least one plane and two helicopters will be fighting the blaze Sunday. Firefighters are using bulldozers to build fire lines to stop progression of the blaze.
