NWS has issued that warning for the Hayman Burn area until 2145hrs, cell is luckily moving North so appears the evac's won't be necessary.

I thought North Fork only had 2 stations. Did they recently add another one? Their website still only shows 2?

Actually reading further it looks like they took over Trumbull VFD and made it their station #3. Can anybody confirm this?

Mountain Communities FD is also still down there as well, can't miss them on FERN, thought they might be running the old Trumbull FD.

AP) DECKERS, Colo. Heavy rain Friday night flooded the area where the largest wildfire in state history burned in 2002, washing out bridges and prompting authorities to urge residents to seek higher ground.

Major flooding was reported near the line between Douglas and Teller counties on Colorado 67, which was closed along with Highway 126 at Deckers, Douglas County sheriff's spokeswoman Cocha Heyden said.

An automated system called residents in the Westcreek area to tell them to seek higher ground. Heyden did not have immediate details of how many residents were called or on how deep the water was.

"There is severe flooding," she said.

Search and rescue teams from Teller and Douglas counties were on their way to the area to see if anyone was stranded, Heyden said.

National Weather Service meteorologist Kyle Fredin said a quarter-mile of Colorado 67 was gone, and some locations may have gotten up to 2 inches of rain.

"Two or three bridges are knocked out. We've gotten reports of furniture floating down the river," Fredin said.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning at 6:46 p.m. until 9:45 p.m. Light rain was falling around 9 p.m.

The storm was centered over the area where the 138,000-acre Hayman fire burned four years ago, stripping vegetation that could help soak up moisture. The Forest Service has worked to reseed the area.

So far-

Hwy 67 closed from Deckers to West Creek
A lot of major damage to the Hwy. Including bridges washed out

I/M team taking over operations

Traffic should be able to get into West Creek and Trout Creek although there is still water on the road
