The Cameron Peak fire began August 13 in the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests. A combination of high winds, rugged terrain and critically dry fuels created uncertain fire conditions with lasting growth. This unprecedented fire has burned over 200,000 acres and is the largest in Colorado’s history.
Many of our members, employees, families and friends have been affected by evacuations or structure loss. Our hearts go out to all of those who have been impacted. And while the fire rages, our line crews are working to protect what they can, and rebuild infrastructure as needed.
Thank you to all the first responders for their continued work to keep our community safe and to our linemen and contractors who are working to finish the repairs to our system. And a special thank you to all our members who have been impacted for their patience and support.
This has certainly been a year full of surprises. But no matter what, we worked together to overcome the many challenges we faced. As we look forward, we remain committed to our northern Colorado communities and the members we serve. Together we will power on.
