LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. – A weekend of wet weather helped firefighters bring the Hewlett Fire in rural Larimer County close to containment.

The fire was 87-percent contained Monday after burning almost 7,700 acres. Fire managers hope to have the fire 100-percent contained Tuesday.

All evacuation orders were lifted Friday. No homes have been destroyed.

Also Friday, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper declared a disaster emergency for the Hewlett Fire, releasing $3 million from the state’s Disaster Emergency Fund to help pay for firefighting efforts.

522 firefighters are battling the blaze.
