Cameron Peak Fire Information

Effective Monday, November 16, 2020:  Northwest Incident Management Team 10 (IMT) delegated command of the Cameron Peak Fire on state and private lands to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.  The IMT will remain in place and continue their efforts on federal lands.

LCSO will work to delegate command of the fire to the respective fire districts.  LCSO will maintain command in areas on state and private lands not covered by a fire district.  

The IMT will not have completed all suppression repairs on state and private lands by the time this transition takes place.  Larimer County will assume responsibility for the remaining repairs and will assess those areas in Spring 2021.  This will be coordinated through the Larimer County Office of Emergency Management.  Questions regarding needed suppression repairs on state and private lands should be sent to oem@larimer.orgClick here for a map showing land ownership.

  • Campfires - only build campfires when and where authorized, do not leave them unattended, and put them out completely.  Use ample water and stir until the coals are cool to the touch.
  • Cigarette and cigar butts - dispose of lit smoking materials properly.
  • Heat transfer from exhaust systems - do not park a vehicle in areas with tall grass that could catch fire.
  • Grinding and welding - keep a shovel and fire extinguisher close and ready to use as these activities can start fires.
