At 1:00 am on the morning of December, CLVFD firefighters and special duty responders were called in to assist Red Feather Lakes VFD when high winds brought down power lines in Red Feather Village, starting a structure fire. Crystal Lakes VFD joined Red Feather Lakes VFD, Glacier View VFD and Livermore VFD in fighting the fire as it was spread by the wind from the original structure to a second structure, ultimately causing more than a dozen other spot fires and small wildland fires. The original fire also overheated a propane tank, which blew up and smashed into the POA building, causing severe damage. Crystal Lakes firefighters carried out primary attack on the structure fires and remained until after 10:00 am to conduct mop-up and verify that all hot spots had been dealt with.
