From Garry Sanfracon in Boulder County (with permission to post):

A couple things - 1) folks do NOT need to be a member of Facebook to view those meetings. They are able to watch without having a login. 2) We know some people hate FB altogether, so we are also going to be doing these live on YouTube at the BOCC account: http://www.youtube.com/c/BoulderCountyBOCC and the idea is to embed the YouTube live stream directly on the BoulderOEM.com. Hopefully it works out, we haven't done that yet.

UPDATE FROM XCEL

In order to energize, we need the approval from Incident Command. The feed to Jamestown comes from the south, right by Gold Hill. When we get the approval to go in to that area, we will need to patrol the line going from Gold Hill to Jamestown before energizing. At this point, we are not allowed into the area.
 
They have been checking with the Safety Officer for this incident regularly but they do not have a timeframe yet.
 
As soon as they know more information, they will let us know. Kristi are both included on their communications so we can get this information out as quickly as possible.

I hope everyone is safe!

Warmly,
Tara

Michael went down the canyon to see if JT folks can use LeftHand/LeeHill. As long as you have proof of residency-driver's license or something with your name and JT address you can use LeftHand/LeeHill. The officer stressed this for Jamestown proper only!

Regarding Power Issues:

Today I received this message from Xcel

"Incident command continues to restrict Xcel Energy's access to the fire area and has not indicated when our crews may enter and restore power to about 1000 customers in the CalWood and Lefthand Canyon fire areas. We remain ready when conditions are safe for us to enter."

If this is accurate, it does not seem likely that power will resume in the immediate future.

Power outage: Apparently, the power is intentionally cut to JT, Ward, Gold Hill, Bar-K, (etc.), so that dropping retardant and/or water does not take down a live power line, which would likely light up more fire exactly where we don't want it.
Please correct me, if this is now outdated and inaccurate.

Drew you should be fine. That's the first thing we'll do if there's a fire threat. The downside of turning off propane is that cuts off heat. But then there's no electricity so no heat anyway! Fortunately it's not too cold and certainly not freezing yet. Everyone leaving should be sure that electric appliances particularly are off. Turning on a non-responsive cookstove and then forgetting that it's left on can be bad when power is restored.

Shared with permission, posted by Sheriff Joe Pelle after 9 pm last tonight:

“Hey Friends. In regards to our fires, it was a good day but we are not out of the woods. Down low it looks great. But up high there is still lots of active fire and wind concerns. While it’s been been cool and humid down here, above 8000 feet it’s been sunny and windy. The firefighters and aircraft did amazing work but we are at the mercy of winds for the next couple days until hopefully we get a wet cold weekend. Power is still out in fire zone and the prospect for a blow up is still there until we get cold and wet. There is no A-bomb smoke cloud today so evacuees are impatient and ready to go home. But it’s not safe yet. We’ve got hundreds of firefighters and lots of aircraft but nothing is solidly safe until the weather changes. Be patient. This weekend looks promising. We are making progress on cause investigations. Pray for calm winds and moisture. Thanks for all the good wishes. Over and out.”

Thanks David, Michael and others.

I'm still trying to fathom why JT wasn't a mandatory evac when it's in the middle of all the evac zones.
Seems to me not being a mandatory evac indicates lesser potential danger.


If the power outage was intentional for good reasons, a heads up or an explanation would ease the confusion and given a little more time to make decisions.

The confusion concerning access to town and hours seems to be all over the place. An 'If you leave' policy wasn't clear, not even sure if there was one, seems to be whomever is working traffics opinion. Correct me if Im wrong.

Was lower James Canyon to Left Hand / Lee Hill / Olde Stage closed for emergency vehicle traffic reasons ?

I realize things change in the blink of an eye and all are doing their best.

Fire suit on.

Not a lot to update tonight but here you go. The Lefthand fire doesn't seem to have moved much as winds stayed fairly calm today. As far as we've heard, still no structures lost. The Calwood fire remains active above us but well managed. Jamestown has had a crew working up there every day, thanks Seth, Jaye, Clay, and Rich! No additional threat to Jamestown at this point. Canyon closures seem to change by the hour so no guarantee you'll get through at any given time but Jamestown residents (with ID) can get in one way or 'tother. Power is still out however so unless you really have to, stay downtown and stay comfortable. Until the Lefthand Fire is contained, Jamestown remains threatened so we're staying in town to respond quickly if necessary. There is internet if there's power and hard lines are working now. If you're considering coming up for a house check or some other simple operation, you can try to email myself or another firefighter with the request. Absolutely no certainty that I/we can take it on but if it saves unnecessary traffic in the canyon we can try and help you out. Be well Jimtowners! You too Bar-K folks :-). david at jimtown (dot) org

Speaking of phone/internet. I've tried to call in to centurylink that there is a tree leaning against the fiber just west of Elliot's pitch, they always say that they don't manage it. Anyway if anyone does know who to contact, it's obvious where the tree is. Just follow the line before (heading down canyon) the hairpin turn. The tree is putting a lot of tension on the line. It looks like the tree is leaning because the bank is getting eroded away.

About Jamestown Internet Phone and Power.

I have been trying to get the issue of Internet and Phone dependency on Jamestown power for over a year.
I could not get enough attention to get this fixed.
After some apparent changes last year Century Link plugged their incoming router and phone into the
local JT power. Ever since every time the power went out so did the internet and some time later the phone.
Finally today by luck Jay saw two Century Link guys messing with the comm box in town and were able to get them
to admit that there is no UPS or any backup source for the JT internet and for the Phone they only have an 8 hour
UPS backup. They "allowed" to plug in their gear to a generator our resourceful Jay picked up. With that Phone and Internet are both came right up.
The s h t had to hit the fan to get this issue resolved. Hopefully the authorities or Century Link will take this a step forward and install a more permanent backup generator. During emergencies the internet seems to be the choice of communication and the source of information and especially today it needless to explain why we need it to work.

Hollis,
I spoke to my mom this morning, she is at the school and it looks like that is one of the few places that have communication I think because of a generator. I don't think they have turned the power back on yet but I spoke to her at 9:30 am so it may be different now.

I guess I'll try my luck after work and see if I can get home.

Can anyone verify if the electricity / power has been restored to Jamestown ?
That's another factor for returning. I can't access information without power.

Was Jamestown ever officially evacuated ?

Can residents return ?

I left Sunday p.m. because of the power outage and no communication issues vs a possible evacuation in the middle of the night.

I imagine the food in my fridge is gonna be ripe by the time I'm allowed back. Hope the bears don't get a wiff of it.

There's too many different emergency management departments involved, all with different stories.

Now it looks like I gotta join Friggin' Facebook to get info.

Update from the Nederland Fire Protection District Facebook page—

update 10/19/2020 0700.
We do not have much new news on either the Calwood Fire or the fire by Ward. But, we can pass on what we do know.
Ward Fire: last night we pulled our engine out ay 8pm, our tender spent the night supporting ongoing operations. It was about 300 acres. Basically it was about 2.5 miles long and rather skinny , burning on ridge tops heading East from MM 14. Terrain and fire activity was too extreme to do any indirect attack. Crews spent the day using the road as a fire break and keeping the fire from crossing it an threatening areas to the South. After the breezes last night, who knows, but we expect it to continue going East. But, if you have lived up here for any amount of time, winds can shift. We expect a significant amount of air attack on it for today, if they can fly in these winds. There is a still a significant potential for this to go bad. Cause is still under investigation.
CalWood Fire: Fire activity yesterday was mild. There was an inversion in Boulder that helped keep the fire calm. Driving down Lefthand Canyon, it transitioned from driving into smoke to driving into wet fog at about MM8. But, all bets are now off. The inversion has lifted and the wind is strong. We expect significant fire activity there today.
The whole fire is now being managed by a type 2 incident management team. We expect them to wrap command over both of these fires in an "area command". Resources are coming in from areas as far as Pennsylvania and Washington state. We thank them.
To emphasize, Nederland Fire is here for you today. We are well staffed and prepared. Volunteers are cancelling work and family plans to support our community. Without our volunteers , we simply could not do this. We have been coordinating with Timberline Fire and Sugarloaf to share resources over our geographic area. This way we can ensure solid coverage for our own residents' homes , while we go defend our neighbors (and friends) homes. Cooperation and teamwork is the name of the game.
We will post updates as the day unfolds.
Thank-you

Does anyone know if we can get back into town? I’ve been out since Thursday and need to get back to get my company pickup and a few items from my place.

Not for sure if many of you know me.....I have met a few of you all, but I live between Michelle’s and Vic’s on 15th.

We’ve not posted on here before, but we’re Lindsey and Justin, Boy (the Dane many of you’ve seen around) and Kitten (white fluffy love). We purchased the Welner’s place up High St a little over a year ago. We’ve met plenty of you out and about, and have failed to meet so many others in these strange times. I feel strongly inclined to express in this moment how much gratitude we’ve felt this past year for the rare opportunity to live life differently in the presence of such great people. Vulnerability to nature is so much of what makes this life amazing, sometimes devastating—I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Sending so much love to you all.

So another update for y'all. The Lefthand fire is very real. Not sure the size at this point but it's burned down to the canyon at the 14MM and then headed NE toward, but not to, Gold Lake Rd. The air attack was massive and effective. Ward is evacuated but there doesn't seem to be any real threat at this point. There are few people (mostly firefighters) sticking around. There are a lot of crews that will likely be on scene all night and for the next day(s).

Work continues on the Calwood Fire but most of the damage has occurred along Hwy 36. No structures have been lost at Calwood, Balarat, or on 87J and crews worked all day and continue to work on it. There is no additional threat to Jamestown at this point but the same vulnerability to a wind/weather shift persists.

Power has been cut to Jamestown, Ward, and Bar-K now. Jamestown is largely empty but a sizable JVFD crew remains in town. If any evacuation or fire status changes for the worse, we'll be notified and the town siren will be sounded. Right now, it's cold, dark, and the only thing missing is moisture!

I believe that it remains a hard closure for all of Lefthand and James Canyon below Jamestown. Not a lot of reason to be here anyway right now and town will be here when you get back. There has been a lot of shocking and sad loss below. Hopefully our mountain towns have been spared this time, only enduring an inconvenience. But it's not over yet so send all those good feels up the hill!

At 2:50pm we tried leaving Jamestown via Lefthand Canyon the officer informed us that Lefthand Canyon is a hard close. To exit Jamestown he instructed us to go peak to peak through Ned or through Lyons. He said these directions could change at any time.

At 3:30pm We were able to drive peak to peak through Ned down Boulder Canyon into Boulder.

Updates regarding returning to Jamestown:

As of 1pm Jamestown residents were allowed back into James canyon with an ID showing their address. From Boulder the required route was Lee Hill to Lefthand Canyon, Lefthand Canyon to James Canyon.
However, there appears to be another fire near Ward. This new development may impact travel on any portion of Lefthand Canyon as this is a dynamic situation. Those residents that have already evacuated are encouraged to stay put if possible.

There's a passle of Xel Energy trucks where you turn onto dirt but they will let you go on down to Jimtown if you live here. There is another batch of fire guys, etc. at the fire station, so I'm not sure if you can go on down past Jimstown. SvH

Waiting for confirmation is probably a good idea, Burt. I am a bit miffed at the lack of updates and clear guidance from Boulder OEM, FB/QT/Twitter seems more speculation than solid info. I just spent 10:34 listening to elevator music on the OEM public call line only to have it drop me. Not helpful.
I do plan to stay out of the way since we’re not out of the woods yet.

Perhaps someone could post a short summary of the Weather forecast Scientific Discussion for the next few days for some context.

I've just gotten back from working on the fire. Currently there is still fire on the north side of the Calwood property but most of the damage and current threat is to the east on Hwy36. All the structures are fine on Calwood, I believe. There is just one that I can't confirm. The fire has not threatened any structures at Balarat. All of 87J, to this point, is ok with nothing lost. The fire was driven mostly from the middle of Calwood down into St. Vrain Canyon and then to the north of Fairview Peak. The threat is not gone but winds are favorable and operations are continuing tonight. For those still in Jamestown you should be able to sleep comfortably. But stay alert, particularly for a northerly or strong easterly wind. If there is an imminent threat, we'll make sure the siren is sounded.

Yes, the Town has requested that the siren is sounded if there is an order for mandatory evacuation. The county will also alert the community via a reverse 911.

Thank you to our amazing community for staying alert and vigilant.

Warmly,
Tara

Keep an eye on the orange glow in the sky.

Anyone needing to evacuate HORSES please call me! My barn has 5 brand new and available stalls left and I have 2 pastures (one acre each).

This is Holly (formerly of Jamestown and the Merc)- I own a small horse ranch property and I just finished building my horse facilities! If I run out of room, I am sure that my neighbors will help with overflow. This neighborhood is a horse community.

303.587.3511 try first

Or

720.242.9393


(If you reach my voicemail-leave a message and I will call you right back! I’m home but working with my horses tonight)

We can make room for trailers!

I also have RV hook ups if you have a camper and need a place to stay.

If anyone needs a trailer to haul horses out, I have a 2 stall straight load available!


I’m located in Brighton by Barr lake. Just off of I76 & Bromley)
