Another fire broke out on Flagstaff Mountain, west of Boulder. Reverse 911 calls for pre-evacution out to ~2400 Boulder residents and businesses. The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is in danger as it is in the mountains nearby. Three hundred acres burned at this point. Wind inconsistent.
This image (above) was taken from my house (same vantage point as the sun rays in my last post) as I returned from an interview in Longmont at 5:00pm. This fire is 15 miles from me. I don't anticipate it will get this far east, but if it reaches Boulder, it will affect businesses that support our livelihoods.
And this at 7:00pm ...
Got out late for the sunset ... 8:30pm. These are north of the fire zone in previous pictures.
