Fire is holding steady at just under 15 acres, fire crews remaining on scene along with LE to maintain watch overnight.

Some roads have been re-opened, but evacuations remain in place and likely through tomorrow.

There was little growth of the #TinyHouseFire overnight. Evacuation orders for the Conifer Hill area are still in place. S. St. Vrain is open, however please be aware that firefighting equipment remains in the area. No structures have been impacted by the fire.
