"People right here because of the mountainous terrain are building homes right next to each other," evacuee Robert Job said. "There's a whole [lot] more people up in our canyon."
About a half mile from Job's home is a large, grassy meadow along Red Feather Lakes Road. Fire fighters have used bull dozers to create a fire barrier there. Job believes this could be the last resort for homeowners.
"Once it gets [past the meadow] then it can go all the way to the canyon wall and just get everyone," Job said. "That meadow protects everyone on this side."
When he says everyone, he means hundreds of homes like the one Sandee Hill bought two years ago.
"We're not on top of each other, but we're very, very close," Hill said.
Friday night, the fire jumped a different fire barrier and destroyed homes in the Glacier View Filing #12 neighborhood. Hill says Filing #8 has homes lined up and down the road.
"If it continues into the other filings, I mean, it's home after home after home will burn," Hill said.
Saturday, the American Red Cross closed the evacuation shelter at The Ranch complex near Loveland. The shelter was moved back to Cache La Poudre Middle School because it is closer to the Glacier View evacuees.
But, services are still being provided at The Ranch. Red Cross officials want people seeking assistance, especially if they lost their homes, to go to The Ranch. If they need a place to stay, Cache La Poudre Middle School has space available.
Job just hopes his neighborhood can be saved.
"Once it just gets up in there, its just gonna run like it did - run, run, run," Job said.
