The fires continue to rage – disaster situation announced

The decision to declare an emergency frees up resources, among other things, to help people who have been affected and for the reconstruction efforts that will be necessary.

About 15,500 homes in remote areas and in valleys in the Sangre de Cristo mountains are currently subject to mandatory evacuations.

Temporary relatively calm and cool weather is currently facilitating efforts to prevent the fire from penetrating even closer to several places.

About 170 homes have so far been destroyed in the fire.
