Smoke from the sprawling Cameron Peak Fire obscured the sky over Fort Collins, Colorado, as high winds from a cold front in the area fanned the flames on October 14.
“Fort Collins today,” wrote uploader Ana de Lorme on footage of the smoke clouds. “Smoke and ash fill the air, and charred pine needles rain down every so often. Scary and heartbreaking.”
The fire had grown to 164,140 acres by October 15, to become the largest in state history, eclipsing the size of the Pine Gulch Fire from earlier this season. As of October 15, the Cameron Peak Fire was 56 percent contained. Credit: Ana de Lorme via Storyful
