More than 1,300 firefighters are fighting the High Park Fire west of Fort Collins today. Hundreds of people have had to evacuate, and some of them are out of their homes indefinitely. That’s raising questions about their needs beyond things like food, clothing and shelter. Larimer County opened a disaster recovery center at Colorado State University today to help with some of those long-term issues. KUNC’s Grace Hood stopped by, and filed this report.
