Five Type 1 hot shot crews are concentrating on the troublesome area today, with "a goal of putting a line around the fire, containing this portion of the big fire," Hahnenberg said.

Structure assessment crews will continue their work inside the bounds of the 54,230 acre fire that started Saturday with a lightning strike in Paradise Park. The fire is 20 percent contained.

About 195 firefighters and heavy helicopters are attacking the spot fire burning on Sheep Mountain near the Glacier View Meadows neighborhood north of the Cache la Poudre River. Wind driven embers sparked the fire Thursday afternoon. Their focus is on structure protection

The current cost of fighting the fire is $9.1 million. About 2,600 notifications to local residents have been sent out since the fire started, and 1,187 of those notifications have been lifted, according to the sheriff's office.

Crews will continue to patrol and monitor the eastern boundary where Hahnenberg said "there is very little heat."

"We are going to overcome," Hahnenberg said, "by being smart, aggressive and persistent."

Firefighters are worried by the spot fire now about 200 acres said Bill Hahnenberg, the incident commander. If unchecked, the spot fire could gain momentum and make a run at Glacier View.

Tally of lost homes in High Park Fire now 112

The terrain near the Glacier View spot fire is extreme, including numerous steep pitches and gullies, and fire fuels are abundant, including large patches of beetle killed timber.

In terms of homes burned, High Park also is the third most destructive, behind 2010's Fourmile Canyon fire, which burned 169 west of Boulder, and Hayman which burned 133 west of Colorado Springs.

Christensen said the homes lost burned in the first couple of days of the fire. "Structure protection came after life Vans Cyan

"I knew this was a big, big fire," Christensen said. "I was hopeful it was going to be a lower number. But it's not, and it's going to grow."

At 54,230 acres, High Park Fire now is the third largest in recorded Colorado history, behind Hayman at 137,760 acres and Missionary Ridge, 71,739 acres. Both occurred during the drought of 2002.

"These are stories," Christensen said of the tally. "Every one represents a family who has lost their home."

Meanwhile, the eastern flank of the fire, closest to the city of Fort Collins, is "in really good shape," Hahnenberg said.

safety, so we lost a lot of homes in the first few days of the fire," Christensen said. "The last few days, structure protection has been successful. We have not lost additional homes."

He said the home of a Sheriff's department employee burned, and it's likely several firefighters are among those who lost homes.

About 1,400 firefighters are battling the fire today, concentrating resources on the north and west flanks to protect homes.

Assessment crews will be working in Lawrence Creek, Redstone Canyon, Buckhorn, Stove Prairie and other Rist Canyon neighborhoods tomorrow, he said.

High humidity is expected to return Wednesday and Thursday to help the fight, he said.

The official tally of homes burned in the High Park Fire is now 112, making the blaze still moving west of Fort Collins the most devastating loss of property in Northern Colorado, Larimer County sheriff's executive officer Nick Christensen said.

Storms are expected to move out Sunday, leaving "another hurdle for us to jump" on Monday and Tuesday, with dry weather and wind gusts up to 50 mph, he said.

"We're working hard on the spot fire across the Poudre Canyon," Hahnenberg said. "Mother Nature is being very difficult."
