Pueblo, CO: The Pueblo County residents that have been asked to evacuate from their homes are able to go to a Red Cross reception Center at 84 Stanford, Church of the Nazarene. The shelter is only for evacuees of the Wetmore Fire.
Animals needing boarding can be taken to the Colorado State Fairgrounds. Please bring food for your animal if possible.
Red Cross has established their Safe-N-Well website so citizens from both Custer and Pueblo County that have been evacuated can register as a way to let family and friends know they are safe.
Please DO NOT bring donations of any sort to the reception center. If you have things you'd like to donate it is important that the coordination for these items goes through the American Red Cross 719 561-2614.
The fire has now crossed the Custer/Pueblo County Line. While this evacuation is a precautionary measure, citizens that have been asked to evacuate need to do so. The winds are very strong and unpredictable; the fire may become a threat to Pueblo County lives and property with no additional notice.
