Hundreds Evacuate Larimer Co Wildfire

· Jun. 11, 2012, 11:00 am

A wildfire burning west of Fort Collins now covers almost 37,000 acres. It has damaged or destroyed at least 18 structures, and officials expect that number to rise. Hundreds of people and animals have been evacuated since the blaze started this weekend, and the fire continues to burn out of control with no containment.  Grace Hood and Nathan Heffel of Colorado Public Radio's partner station KUNC in Greeley have two reports on the evacuees of the High Park Fire.
