CalWood Fire and Cameron Peak Fire in Colorado
The fast-moving CalWood Fire in Boulder County ignited on Saturday and has quickly grown to nearly 9,000 acres, while Colorado firefighters continue to battle the nearby Cameron Peak Fire. Dry conditions and heavy winds worsened conditions for both fires.
The Cameron Peak Fire began on Aug. 13 and has been burning for over two months now. It is the largest recorded wildfire in Colorado’s history burning 203,253 acres. The fire was 62% contained as of Sunday afternoon.
