Fire forces hundreds of evacuations in Colorado

The Peak 2 Fire as seen from the town of Breckenridge Colorado

A wildfire has scorched about 60 acres (24.3 hectares) and forced residents from their homes near the Colorado mountain town of Breckenridge.

The newspaper reports Peak Seven, which is one of the mountains that makes up Breckenridge's legendary ski terrain, is already on full evacuation while a nearby location is on what's called "pre-evacuation".

There are a host of crews already working the fire and almost 130 personnel, including eight smoke jumpers, a 20-person hotshot crew, two 20-person Type II hand crews, two helicopters being used to drop water, and multiple local fire agencies.

Another day of hot, dry weather is expected Thursday, and firefighters and the Summit County sheriff said at a Thursday morning news conference that wind speeds could pick up later in the day.

The fire has burned an estimated 80 acres. That includes at least 463 residences, officials say.
