LOVELAND, Colo. (WXYZ) - While firefighters are still battling the wildfires west of Fort Collins, evacuees are left to worry and wonder about their homes they had to leave.
So far 59,000 acres have burned. One hundred eighty nine homes are confirmed lost. One woman has been killed. New areas were added to the pre-evacuation list today.
At the Red Cross Evacuation Center, they are still feeding about 200 people a day.
Thirteen people are still staying at the shelter. One of them is Diane Barger who tells 7 Action News that she has never seen anything like it.
"Suddenly, the fire erupted." She was on the phone with emergency personnel who told her, "Get out now."
She says the hardest part is being away from her pets who are staying with others.
"They are my family," she says.
