Driven by strong winds and racing through dry fuels and timber, the East Troublesome Fire in Grand County continued to rage yesterday.
The wildfire grew to 170,000 acres as it crossed the Continental Divide and forced new evacuations around Estes Park.
The fire, which has burned an as-yet-undetermined number of homes and buildings while threatening Grand Lake, increased an extraordinary 150,000 in size Wednesday night and Thursday to become the second-largest wildfire in Colorado’s history.
All three of Colorado’s largest recorded fires—Cameron Peak, East Troublesome and Pine Gulch—have burned in just the last three months.
