BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Boulder County fireplace officers have a crew responding to the so-called CalWood Fireplace close to the Cal-Wooden Schooling Heart. The world is south of Freeway 7 (often known as S. St. Vrain Drive) and northeast of Bald Mountain.
Boulder County commissioners signed a neighborhood emergency catastrophe declaration.
County Highway 87 is now closed. S. St. Vrain Drive can be closed between Peak to Peak Freeway and Lyons, which incorporates Riverside Drive.
Employees are evacuating the Corridor Ranch and Heil Valley trails, the sheriff’s workplace says. In the meantime the city of Jamestown is being evacuated.
Evacuees can go to the North Broadway Advanced at 3460 N. Broadway.
The City of Jamestown is being evacuated because of the #CalwoodFire.

Officers haven’t given an estimated measurement of the hearth.
The middle is about 17 miles from downtown Boulder.
It’s not clear what precipitated the hearth, or whether or not any constructions are threatened.
