A wildfire is burning west of Loveland in Larimer County. It sparked around 10:30 A.M. Sunday near 663 Reservoir Dr., responding fire crews say structures are threatened.
Fire officials had estimated the size of the fire at over 1,000 acres, but now say GPS mapping puts it back closer to 600-700 acres. The fire has destroyed at least one structure. Officials say anyone within a four-mile radius of Pinewood Reservoir should evacuate. The fire is centered between the Pinewood Reservoir and Flatiron Reservoir area.
The U.S. Forest Service and Colorado Forest Service Fire Crews are working with County Crews on the scene. No word yet on what caused the fire.
