Evacuations Lifted For Colorado’s Peak 2 Fire

Evacuations around Colorado’s Peak 2 Fire have been lifted.

The fire was spotted on Wednesday morning, just outside of Breckenridge.

This led to the evacuations of the Peak 7 neighborhood, on Wednesday afternoon.

On Friday night, residents were allowed back in, as the fire had not grown beyond its 85 acres and containment had reached 25%.

The Peak 7 neighborhood is currently listed as being on pre-evacuation notice, meaning residents may have to leave again and should stay alert.

Both the Farmer’s Korner and Gold Hill neighborhoods remain on a pre-evacuation notice.

More than 360 firefighters and two helicopters are working to finish off the blaze.
