The Cameron Peak fire has now burned over 100,000 acres and is only four percent contained as of Tuesday. The fire ignited on August 13 on the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests near Cameron Pass and Chambers Lake, 15 miles SW of Red Feathers Lake. It is burning in heavy timber stands over rugged terrain. Hot, dry, windy weather, combined with critically dry fuels has been driving rapid fire growth.

The cause of the fire is still unknown and is under investigation. Over 800 firefighters are working to get the blaze under control. Extensive structure and point protection is a high priority.
