Hayden Pass Fire has burned 10K acres, evacuation zone expanded

Posted: Updated:
FREMONT COUNTY -

A fire burning in Fremont County near Coaldale has doubled in size, mostly to the east, according to fire officials.

The Hayden Pass Fire has burned approximately 10,000 acres as of Monday afternoon and is zero percent contained.

Crews are still calling for mandatory evacuations for people south of County Road 6, as well as a three mile radius of County Road 6 and County Road 45.

Additionally, people living along County Road 40 are now under a mandatory evacuation order, now including the Fox Creek Subdivision. Door-to-door mandatory evacuation enforcement is happening now along Fox Creek Road.

Crews are not yet building lines around the fire because of rough terrain, officials said. Right now, crews are focusing mainly on structure protection.

The fire department in Howard is an evacuation shelter, and Chaffee County Fairgrounds in Salida is taking in animals.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
