The Wood River Valley is in trouble, all right.
The 25,960 acre Castle Rock fire is now 38 percent contained. Resources fighting this fire include 1,401 firefighters, 10 helicopters, 3 bulldozers, 41 hand crews and 100 engines.
The Castle Rock Fire:
Due to the heavy wind conditions and high possibilities for spot fires later this evening, County officials, in conjunction with the Forest Service, are issuing a mandatory evacuation order for all residents north of Ohio Gulch to the bridge at St. Lukes Hospital - both east and west sides of Highway 75. This is a mandatory evacuation because this is the prudent thing to do under current weather conditions. Residents will see fire apparatus in their neighborhoods to provide structure protection.
Here's the current perimeter map. My house is just north of the circled 75 on the map, and isn't currently in danger. However, the mandatory evacuation areas include low-income housing. I'm sending money.
