We have been closely monitoring the Cal-Wood Fire, in partnership with the Boulder Office of Emergency Management and the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, as the fire spread and evacuation areas are impacting several areas within our district community. Firefighting crews have done an outstanding job working to contain the northern and eastern spread of the fire, but we know that wildfires can be unpredictable and we must remain vigilant and prepared for any changes to the fire’s activity.
