The fire is #1 priority for colorado right now. There are at least 250 firefighters working the fire including ~10 hotshot crews, a few huge planes, helis and all the stopping power available. They are no shortcuts on this one. They assume Colorado can not take another financially devastating fire like the Black forest fire. Even though the direction of the fire is to old Hayden fire it is burning on itself and it is mostly across the river from population. I hope they can keep it from jumping the S. Platte. In a perfect world they could contain the fire and let it rip towards the non-populated/preburned area. The forrest would be better off.
