The Cold Springs Fire stands somewhere between 500 and 570 acres, depending on whose estimates you use. More wind and humidity today could again drive its spread, but firefighters reported some success in preventing its spread on Monday.
The fire seems to be shifting eastward. Officials have reopened Sugarloaf Road, which runs just to the north of the fire, but the blaze now is pushing up against Boulder Canyon Drive to the south, as an online incident map shows. Firefighters are trying hard to keep it from crossing the canyon road, which acts as a barrier.

I snapped this last night near Nederland, co. It's still burning as I type this… Huge props to the firefighters battling this beast! Be safe out there! Hopefully they can keep it under control and we won't lose more homes or more importantly any lives to this. Stay safe out there everyone and heed those evacuation warnings! Let's hope for calm winds today. #coldspringsfire #wildfire #coloradogram #coloradolive #natgeo #natgeotravel #yesweather #coloradotography #nightphotography_exclusive
