Fourmile Fire - How you can help

As of noon today, The Fourmile Canyon Fire near Boulder County has burned more than 7,000 acres and 92 structures, 54 of which are homes. 8 people have been reported missing.

While thousands of residents have been evacuated, 600+ fire fighters continue to work around the clock to try curtail the progression of the fire.

Evacuees are still waiting on the OK from city officials to return to the area. Due to falling trees and powerlines down, the area is deemed unsafe it could be days before any word.

During this time, the Red Cross has set up overnight evacuation centers and are accepting donations for Colorado’s Disaster Relief Fund

The Longmont Humane Society is also accepting donations for animals that have been displaced.
