Rist Canyon, parts of Old Flowers Road hit by High Park Fire to reopen June 28

High Park Fire officials will reopen a large section of homes in the Rist Canyon area at 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 28. As this will affect several hundred people, residents are encouraged to attend the upcoming citizen briefings for critical safety, communications and utility information.

Residents will need credentials to enter the area when it opens. To facilitate the issuance of credentials and to avoid last minute delays, credentials may be obtained in advance at the citizen briefings.

The areas being opened are:

– Rist Canyon Road (and all roads leading from it) from Whale Rock Road west to Stove Prairie Road.

– Old Flowers Road from Stove Prairie Road to the 8000 block of Old Flowers Road.

– Stove Prairie Road north from Rist Canyon Road to Bent Timber Lane.

Residents are cautioned to remain vigilant to fire danger and to consider themselves on a pre-evacuation notice status.
