But his co-worker and brother are on standby for a possible evacuation order.

    Day 5 of the Fire I was in Fort Collins, Loveland and Eaton and this is what it looked like. By Tomorrow (Thursday 6-14) there will be 800 Firefighters on the ground, and another (at least) 1,000 people evacuated. Some have been let back in to assess their homes in other areas. At least 100 Homes have been burned. My brother has a former co-worker that is on standby to evacuate his home at any time.
