Firefighters work to contain Larimer County wildfire
LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. -- Wildland fires along the Front Range continue to threaten homes because of near-drought conditions. Firefighters worked into the evening Thursday to contain a fire that burned close to 80 acres in Larimer County. Using power tools, pic axes and shovels, firefighters with the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office “mopped-up” the Hertha Ridge Fire that threatened at least a half dozen homes about 11 miles outside Berthoud when it started Wednesday afternoon.
